On Cherishing the Army گفتار اندر دلداری هنرمندان

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

Two persons, oh conquering king, patronize!
The man who has strength and the man who is wise.
Those bear Fortune’s ball off, from persons renowned,
Who cherishing sages and warriors are found.  
  دو تن، پرور ای شاه کشور گشای
یکی اهل بازو، دوم اهل رای
ز نام آوران گوی دولت برند
که دانا و شمشیر زن پرورند
If a man has not handled the pen or the sword,
Over him, should he die, say no sorrowing word!
Look after the writer and swordsman, with care;
Not the minstrel! for bravery in woman is rare!
هر آن کو قلم را نورزید و تیغ
بر او گر بمیرد مگو ای دریغ
قلم زن نکودار و شمشیر زن
نه مطرب که مردی نیاید ز زن
‘Tis unmanly that you, with the enemy armed,
Should with Bearers of wine and lute music be charmed.
Many prosperous people who sat down to play,
By gambling, have squandered their fortunes away.
نه مردی است دشمن در اسباب جنگ
تو مدهوش ساقی و آواز چنگ
بسا اهل دولت به بازی نشست
که ملکت برفتش به بازی ز دست
