The speaker reads a poem by Persian poet Hafez on the occasion of Yelda Night, which is a Persian festival. People gather together to celebrate the longest day of winter and read poetry, especially by Hafez. This poem was taken from a collection of poems and has no title. Since all of his poems are open to interpretation, they still apply in today's world so they are often used as a means of fortune telling. One randomly chooses a poem to "consult" it in terms of a personal matter. This is way it is virtually impossible to state a topic for the poem because it can be about anything. Additionally, the recording was made at Bielefeld University.
