Story of the wise man and the ameer’s gift حکایت مرد روشن ضمیر و هدیه امیر

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

The Cathay Ameer sent a rich, silken dress
To a sage, who a luminous mind did possess.
یکی را ز مردان روشن ضمیر
امیر ختن داد طاقی حریر
He donn’d it and kissing the ground and his hands,
Said, “A thousand Well dones ‘on the king of all lands!
ز شادی چو گلبرگ خندان شکفت
نپوشید و دستش ببوسید و گفت:
How fine is this dress, from the Tartar Ameer!
Yet my own ragged garment to me is more dear! “
چه خوب است تشریف میر ختن
وز او خوب تر خرقه خویشتن
If you’re free; on the ground you should slumber, and then,
Do not kiss for a carpet the ground before men!
گر آزادهای بر زمین خسب و بس
مکن بهر قالی زمین بوس کس
He kissed the hands of the messenger who brought the present.
