On the Transitoriness of the World گفتار اندر بی‌وفائی دنیا

On the Transitoriness of the World گفتار اندر بی‌وفائی دنیا

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

The world is a realm that is transient, oh son!
Do not hope for fidelity here, for there’s none!
  جهان ای پسر ملک جاوید نیست
ز دنیا وفاداری امید نیست
Did not Solomon’s throne, on the wind swiftly fly,
Both morning and ev’ning (on him safety lie!),
نه بر باد رفتی سحرگاه و شام
سریر سلیمان علیه‌السلام؟
And have you not seen that it vanished at last?
Happy he, who with knowledge and justice has passed  
  به آخر ندیدی که بر باد رفت؟
خنک آن که با دانش و داد رفت
From the centre, the man bore Prosperity’s ball,
Who laboured to comfort the great and the small.  
  کسی زین میان گوی دولت ربود
که در بند آسایش خلق بود
The people were useful who held the fruit fast
Not those who collected and left it, at last.  
  بکار آمد آنها که برداشتند
نه گرد آوریدند و بگذاشتند
