Story ON THE CONSEQUENCES OF EVIL-DOING حکایت سفر حبشه

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

As a stranger, at Habsh I arrived, on my way,
With my heart free from pain and my joyous head gay.
By the side of the road I beheld a high mound,
And on it some men who with fetters were bound;
غریب آمدم در سواد حبش
دل از دهر فارغ سر از عیش خوش
به ره بر یکی دکه دیدم بلند
تنی چند مسکین بر او پای بند
I instantly made preparations to fly;
Like a bird from its cage, to the desert I hie.
Some one said to me, “These are night-robbers, forsooth
Who will neither take counsel nor listen to truth.”
بسیچ سفر کردم اندر نفس
بیابان گرفتم چو مرغ از قفس
یکی گفت کاین بندیان شب روند
نصیحت نگیرند و حق نشنوند
If a man has not been by your actions oppressed,
Should the world’s guardian seize on you, don’t be dis tressed!
A good man, as a prisoner, none has confined!
Be afraid of the Lord ! the Ameer do not mind!
چو بر کس نیامد ز دستت ستم
تو را گر جهان شحنه گیرد چه غم؟
نیاورده عامل غش اندر میان
نیندیشد از رفع دیوانیان
If an agent has been in his dealings correct,
He feels not alarmed when by auditors checked.
And if under his honesty cheating should lie,
His tongue in explaining accounts will be shy.
وگر عفتت را فریب است زیر
زبان حسابت نگردد دلیر
نکونام را کس نگیرد اسیر
بترس از خدای و مترس از امیر
When a laudable service I’m able to show,
I am free from concern for the dark-minded foe.
Should a slave be industrious, and humble appear,
His master will certainly reckon him dear.
چو خدمت پسندیده آرم بجای
نیندیشم از دشمن تیره رای
اگر بنده کوشش کند بندهوار
عزیزش بدار خداوندگار
And if, while at work, he should laziness show,
From a man to a load-bearing ass he will go.
وگر کند رای است در بندگی
ز جان داری افتد به خربندگی
Advance, that in rank you may angels surpass!
If you tarry behind, you are worse than an ass.
قدم پیش نه کز ملک بگذری
که گر بازمانی ز دد کمتری
