Sweep out the Chambers
By Amida Harvey (words Mahmud Shabistari)
This song was written by a wonderful family friend and my neighbour here in Devon, Amida Harvey. Amida has known me since I was a baby! He created this song back in 1986 (the year before my birth!) for Dances of Universal Peace, so this song also has a beautiful dance that goes with it.
The words of this song are by the Persian Sufi poet Mahmud Shabistari, from his 1000-line Sufi poem Gulshan-i raz (Garden of Mystery), which he composed in December 1317.
