Story of the holy man and the sugar-cane حکایت در عزت قناعت

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

One had pieces of sugar-cane heaped on a plate,
And went hither and thither, on buyers to wait
یکی نیشکر داشت در طیفری
چپ و راست گردیده بر مشتری
In the village he said to a God-fearing man:
“Take a little and pay me the price when you can! “
به صاحبدلی گفت در کنج ده
که بستان و چون دست یابی بده
The sage of good origin gave, on his part,
An answer that ought to be graved on the heart:
بگفت آن خردمند زیبا سرشت
جوابی که بر دیده باید نبشت
” Perhaps you might fail to have patience with me;
But without sugar-cane I can very well be.
تو را صبر بر من نباشد مگر
ولیکن مرا باشد از نیشکر
The sugar in cane can no sweetness possess,.
When bitter exacting must after it press.”
حلاوت ندارد شکر در نیش
چو باشد تقاضای تلخ از پیش
