On Inquiring into the State of the Weak, and Thanking God for His Favours. گفتار اندر بخشایش بر ناتوانان و شکر نعمت حق در توانایی

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

No one knows of the worth of the days of delight,
Unless he has, once, been in desperate plight.
Before a rich person, how easy appear
Cold, winter and want, in a famine-struck year?
داند کسی قدر روز خوشی
مگر روزی افتد به سختی کشی
زمستان درویش در تنگ سال
چه سهل است پیش خداوند مال
He who snake-bitten slept, after being distressed,
For curing him, thanks to the Master expressed.
Since in foot you are rapid, and manly in gait,
With slow moving travellers in thankfulness wait!
سلیمی که یک چند نالان نخفت
خداوند را شکر صحت نگفت
چو مردانهرو باشی و تیز پای
به شکرانه باکند پایان بپای
Do the young on the old many favours bestow ?
Do the strong for the weak any sympathy show?
Of water’s worth, what do Jihoonians1 know?
Ask of those left behind in the sun’s parching glow!
به پیر کهن بر ببخشد جوان
توانا کند رحم بر ناتوان
چه دانند جیحونیان قدر آب
ز واماندگان پرس در آفتاب
What grief for the parch’d, in Zaroods desert wide,
Has the Arab who sits by the Tigris’ green side?
The man knows the value of health, in his case,
Who, helpless, has melted in fever a space.
عرب را که در دجله باشد قعود
چه غم دارد از تشنگان زرود
کسی قیمت تندرستی شناخت
که یک چند بیچاره در تب گداخت
When will the dark night appear long to your mind,
Since, from side unto side, you can turn when inclined?
تو را تیره شب کی نماید دراز
که غلطی ز پهلو به پهلوی ناز؟
On the falling and rising of ague, reflect!
For the man who is ill the long night can detect
براندیش از افتان و خیزان تب
که رنجور داند درازای شب
The master awoke by the drum’s sound at last;
Does he know how the night of the sentinel passed?
به بانگ دهل خواجه بیدار گشت
چه داند شب پاسبان چون گذشت؟
