Story OF THE PEARL حکایت مروارید

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

From a cloud there descended a droplet of rain;
I Twas ashamed when it saw the expanse of the main,
یکی قطره باران ز ابری چکید
خجل شد چو پهنای دریا بدید
Saying, “Who may I be, where the sea has its run ?
If the sea has existence, I, truly, have none !”
که جایی که دریاست من کیستم؟
گر او هست حقا که من نیستم
I Since in its own eyes the drop humble appeared,
I In its bosom, a shell with its life the drop reared ;
چو خود را به چشم حقارت بدید
صدف در کنارش به جان پرورید
The sky brought the work with success to a close,
And a famed royal pearl from the rain-drop arose.
سپهرش به جایی رسانید کار
که شد نامور لؤلؤ شاهوار
I Because it was humble it excellence gained;
Knocked at Nullity’s door till it being obtained.
بلندی از آن یافت کو پست شد
در نیستی کوفت تا هست شد
