Story OF THE ASS’S SKULL حکایت سقط شدن خر

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

The unfortunate ass of a villager died;
He its skull as a charm to a vine sapling tied.
یکی روستایی سقط شد خرش
علم کرد بر تاک بستان سرش
An experienced old man chanced to pass near the head;
To the vineyard protector he, smiling, thus said:
جهاندیده پیری بر او برگذشت
چنین گفت خندان به ناطور دشت
” Oh life of your father! don’t think this ass’ bone,
Can the evil eye drive from the field you have sown!
مپندار جان پدر کاین حمار
کند دفع چشم بد از کشتزار
For the stick from his own head and ears, though he tried,.
He repelled not, and helpless and wounded he died.
که این دفع چوب از در کون خویش
نمیکرد تا ناتوان مرد و ریش
What knows the physician of people diseased,
Since he himself, helpless, by Death will be seized. “
چه داند طبیب از کسی رنج برد
که بیچاره خواهد خود از رنج مرد؟
