I'm not sure I like this translation. On a poetic level, it just doesn't flow well. While they are occasional bright spots, it generally has the feel of 4th grade poetry.
I also have reason to suspect that this translation is rather loose in diverting from the text. Of course, I don't have the expertise, familiarity with the work of Hafiz, or the resources to verify that 100%.
I plan to read a different translation of Hafiz's poems, probably Richard Le Gallienne's translation). I'm absolutely certain it will be a better translation.
