    What Was Told, That Jalal al-Din Rumi, 1207 - 1273 . What was said to the rose that made it open was said to me here in my chest. What was told the cypress that made it strong and straight, what was whispered the jasmine so it is what it is, whatever made sugarcane sweet, whatever was said to the inhabitants of the town of Chigil in Turkestan that makes them so handsome, whatever lets the pomegranate flower blush like a human face, that is being said to me now. I blush. Whatever put eloquence in language, that’s happening here. The great warehouse doors open; I fill with gratitude, chewing a piece of sugarcane, in love with the one to whom every that belongs!

    It's basically saying what made those things do what they do, like the rose for example, certain acts, and were trying to find words to why they felt that way. (Btw im just guessing based on my perception >.<)

    The whole poem uses strong images. What was said to the rose that made it open was said--> This whole stanza uses GREAT imagery to me here in my chest. What was told the cypress that made it strong and straight, what was whispered the jasmine so it is what it is, whatever made sugarcane sweet, whatever was said to the inhabitants of the town of Chigil in Turkestan that makes them so handsome, whatever lets the pomegranate flower blush like a human face, that is being said to me now.

    What was told the cypress that made it strong and straight When I read this I pictured a HUGE beautiful Cypress, with it's leaves flowing outward, with vines all over the tree itself. I would say that's something I can see.

    @ShirouxGhoul I have few more questions about the poem. What emotion was the author trying to express? How is the poem organized (lines, stanzas, etc.)? What is unique or interesting about the structure of the poem? Does the poem rhyme? What is the poem saying about life or love? Do you agree or disagree with this message? Explain. Are there any other reasonable ways to interpret this poem?

    No rhyme, he was trying to express love, it's saying everything has a way of getting around, yes there are other ways to interpret this poem. The agree or disagree is for you to decide, and the structure one, I'm not sure.

    It's not about love, it's about spirituality. I take back the 'love' thing.

    As for the poem, you have to keep in mind when reading Rumi that he was a Sufi. Sufism is considered a mystical sect of Islam. The majority of his poetry (as well as Hafiz) is about spirituality. Often he does not come out and say he is talking about God, often referring to him as "the beloved" or other such names. That's who he is referring to in the final line of this poem. Look at the poem within this context of a Sufi poet. Every blessing, strength, etc, given to anything is also given to him. The great warehouse could be him opening himself to God or God opening everything to him. What we are reading are translations. In the originals, many of the poems were written in such a way that more than one meaning could be taken from a line or image they've given us. It's more about what it means to the individual.

    No, it's about what the emotion the author is trying to convey. It's spirituality, what I just wrote was a explanation as to why it's about spirituality.
