Story OF KING A ZD AND HIS SICK SON حکایت عضد و مرغان خوش آواز

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

The son of King Azd1 lay afflicted in bed;
From the mind of the father all patience had fled
A pious man giving advice said, that he
Should all’ the wild birds from their cages set free.
عضد را پسر سخت رنجور بود
شکیب از نهاد پدر دور بود
یکی پارسا گفتش از روی پند
که بگذار مرغان وحشی ز بند
He released all the warblers of sweet, morning strain;
When the prison is ope’d who would captive remain?
He preserved in the arch of the garden retreat,
A wonderful Bulbul? that piped very sweet.
قفسهای مرغ سحر خوان شکست
که در بند ماند چو زندان شکست؟
نگه داشت بر طاق بستان سرای
یکی نامور بلبل خوشسرای
In the morning, the son to the summer-house hied,
And that bird, all alone, in the cupola spied.
He smiled, saying, “Bulbul! your notes are so choice,
In the cage you remain on account of your voice.”
پسر صبحدم سوی بستان شتافت
جز آن مرغ بر طاق ایوان نیافت
بخندید کای بلبل خوش نفس
تو از گفت خود ماندهای در قفس
With your words while unspoken no man has to do;
When spoken, be ready to prove they are true!
As Sadi for some time in silence remained,
From the taunts of his critics he freedom obtained.
ندارد کسی با تو ناگفته کار
ولیکن چو گفتی دلیلش بیار
چو سعدی که چندی زبان بسته بود
ز طعن زبان آوران رسته بود
That man to his bosom takes comfort of heart,
Who lives from communion with people apart
Exposing men’s failings, oh wise man! avoid!
Be with faults of your own, not of others, employed!
کسی گیرد آرام دل در کنار
که از صحبت خلق گیرد کنار
مکن عیب خلق، ای خردمند، فاش
به عیب خود از خلق مشغول باش
When they sing out of harmony, do not give ear!
Shut your eyes when you see an unveiled one appear!
چو باطل سرایند مگمار گوش
چو بیستر بینی بصیرت بپوش
