Jorge Luis Borges and Hafez

An Iranian came to Borges, and showed his interest and Iranians’ interest on Borges’works. Borges asked him if he can recite a Hafez poem in Persian. When he was reciting the next-to-last verse” …I will be crying like a cloud in winter “, Borges started crying as well, asked him to stop reading. And that is enough of me.
