Story OF THE SCHOLAR AND THE MINSTREL’S HARP حکایت مرید و چنگ

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

I have heard that, in comp’ny with tipsy young folk,
A scholar a minstrel’s small drum and harp broke.
شنیدم که در بزم ترکان مست
مریدی دف و چنگ مطرب شکست
Like a harp, he was dragged by the hair through the place
By the slaves, and was tambour-like thumped on the face.
چو چنگش کشیدند حالی به موی
غلامان و چون دف زدندش به روی
He was sleepless all night, from the pain of the blows;
His tutor rebuked him next day when he rose:
شب از درد چوگان و سیلی نخفت
دگر روز پیرش به تعلیم گفت
“If you wish not to be, tambourine-like, face sore,
Oh brother; hold, harp-like, your face down before!
نخواهی که باشی چو دف روی ریش
چو چنگ، ای برادر، سر انداز پیش
