Story of the poor man and his skin coat حکایت مرد فقیر و جامه

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

One, naked, a direm by borrowing got,
And a coat of raw hide, as a cov’ring, he bought.
برهنه تنی یک درم وام کرد
تن خویش را کسوتی خام کرد
Shedding tears, he exclaimed, ” Headstrong fortune, self- willed!
Beneath this raw hide in a warm bath Tm grilled! “
بنالید کای طالع بدلگام
به گرما بپختم در این زیر خام
While the fool, under torture, was fuming away,
From a dungeon one said to him, ” Silence, I pray!
چو ناپخته آمد ز سختی به جوش
یکی گفتش از چاه زندان، خموش
You ought to give thanks to the Giver divine,
That your limbs are not fastened with thongs, like to mine! “
بجای آور، ای خام، شکر خدای
که چون ما نهای خام بر دست و پای
