Story of the holy man and the youth حکایت پارسا و کودک

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

I have heard that among the religious, one had
In pleasantry joked with a good-looking lad
شنیدم که از پارسایان یکی
به طیبت بخندید با کودکی
The other good men, who in solitude dwell,
Discussed in his absence his shortcomings well.
دگر پارسایان خلوت نشین
به عیبش فتادند در پوستین
This story at length with rapidity spread;
To the man who was pious they told it; he said:
به آخر نماند این حکایت نهفت
به صاحب نظر بازگفتند و گفت
Do not rend a friend’s cover, love-stricken in plight;
Good humour’s not wrong, nor is backbiting right! ”
مدر پرده بر یار شوریده حال
نه طیبت حرام است و غیبت حلال!
