Story of the cat and its filth حکایت کثیفی گربه

Story of the cat and its filth حکایت کثیفی گربه

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

A cat with its dirt a clean place will defile;
And conceal it with dust when it sees it is vile.
You are careless regarding your own evil ways;
Don’t you fear lest they fall under other men’s gaze?
پلیدی کند گربه بر جای پاک
چو زشتش نماید بپوشد به خاک
تو آزادی از ناپسندیدهها
نترسی که بر وی فتد دیدهها
From that villanous slave, take a warning you may,
Who oft from his master has broken away;
If he likes, he’ll return, humbly begging, sincere;
But fetters and chains will not make him appear.
براندیش ازان بنده پر گناه
که از خواجه مخفی شود چند گاه
اگر بر نگردد به صدق و نیاز
به زنجیر و بندش بیارند باز
In revenge, with that person you safely can fight,
From whom you’ve a cure, or a refuge in flight.
It behoves you, at present, your deeds to recall;
And not when the book becomes public to all.
به کین آوری با کسی بر ستیز
که از وی گزیرت بود یا گریز
کنون کرد باید عمل را حساب
نه وقتی که منشور گردد کتاب
Though a person did evil, no evil was done,
If he grieved for himself, ere his last day had run.
If the breath on a mirror makes dimness arise,
The heart’s mirror adds to its brightness by sighs.
کسی گرچه بد کرد هم بد نکرد
که پیش از قیامت غم خود بخورد
گر آیینه از آه گردد سیاه
شود روشن آیینه دل به آه
At the sins you have done, let alarm now appear!
So that, on the last day, not a soul you may fear.
بترس از گناهان خویش این نفس
که روز قیامت نترسی ز کس
