Story ON THE HUMILITY AND SUPPLICATION OF UPRIGHT MEN حکایت در معنی تواضع و نیازمندی

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

From the hut of a saint, dressed in clothes patched and torn,
To the ear of a man a dog’s barking was borne.
He said to himself, “What ! a dog barking here? “
And to where the good Dervish was living, came near.
ز ویرانه عارفی ژنده پوش
یکی را نباح سگ آمد به گوش
به دل گفت کوی سگ این جا
درآمد که درویش صالح کجاست؟
He no sign of a dog saw, before or behind;
Except the recluse, no one else did he find.
Quite taken aback, he began to retire;
For about this strange case he felt shame to inquire.
نشان سگ از پیش و از پس ندید
بجز عارف آن جا دگر کس ندید
خجل بازگردیدن آغاز کرد
که شرم آمدش بحث آن راز کرد
Within, the good man heard a footstep outside,
And shouted, “Come in! at the door, why abide?
Oh light of my eyes! you must never suppose
That you heard a dog bark; no ! from me it arose.
شنید از درون عارف آواز پای
هلا گفت بر در چه پایی؟ درآی
نپنداری ای دیده روشنم
کز ایدر سگ آواز کرد، این منم
When I saw that by Him self-abasement was bought,
I removed from my head pride and wisdom and thought.
Like a dog I have barked very much at His gate,
For I’ve seen naught to equal the dog’s abject state.”
چو دیدم که بیچارگی میخرد
نهادم ز سر کبر و رای و خرد
چو سگ بر درش بانگ کردم بسی
که مسکین تر از سگ ندیدم کسی
When a dignified rank you desire to obtain,
At humility’s foot you will excellence gain.
چو خواهی که در قدر والا رسی
ز شیب تواضع به بالا رسی
The chief seat in this Presence those persons will get,
Who lower than others their value have set
در این حضرت آنان گرفتند صدر
که خود را فروتر نهادند قدر
When a torrent bounds on, with a force that appals,
From the top to the bottom it speedily falls.
چو سیل اندر آمد به هول و نهیب
فتاد از بلندی به سر در نشیب
Since dew falls in atoms, most humble in size,
Observe how the sun bears it up to the skies!
چو شبنم بیفتاد مسکین و خرد
به مهر آسمانش به عیوق برد
