Dogs in a market listen to the famous Persian poet Rumi, who praises their attention and understanding. One of many illustrations made in the late 16th century by Turkish artists. I've read little of Rumi's poetry but have admired the bits that I have seen. His poetry and these illustrations make me think of the era when Turkish, Arabic and Persian were flowering languages whose writers produced works we still read today. I do wonder what life was like then.
