Story OF THE UGLY MAN’S ASTONISHING REPLY حکایت جواب سیه چرده

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

A man called a dark-coloured person a fright,
And received a reply that astonished him quite:
” No hand in portraying my features, I had,
That fault you should find, saying, ‘I have done bad.’
سیه چردهای را کسی زشت خواند
جوابی بگفتش که حیران بماند
نه من صورت خویش خود کردهام
که عیبم شماری که بد کردهام
What business have you with my beautiless face?
Fm at least not the painter of wildness and grace.”
Than what on my head Thou hast written before,
Oh Protector of Slaves! I’ve not done less nor more.
تو را با من ار زشت رویم چه کار؟
نه آخر منم زشت و زیبا نگار
از آنم که بر سر نبشتی ز پیش
نه کم کردم ای بنده پرور نه بیش
Thou, at least, art aware that no strength shows in me;
Thy power is absolute, who may I be?
To safety Fll reach, if Thou show me the way;
On the road I’ll be left, if Thou lead me astray.
تو دانایی آخر که قادر نیم
توانای مطلق تویی، من کیم؟
گرم ره نمایی رسیدم به خیر
وگر گم کنی باز ماندم ز سیر
Creator of Earth ! if Thou do not befriend,
When will Thy poor servant to continence tend?
جهان آفرین گر نه یاری کند
کجا بنده پرهیزگاری کند؟
