Story ON THE TR ANSITORI NESS OF GREATNESS حکایت عابد و استخوان پوسیده

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

I have heard that a skull in the Tigris, one day,
Conversed with a servant of God, in this way:
“The splendour of monarchy, once, I possessed;
By the head-dress of greatness my temples were pressed.  
  شنیدم که یک بار در حله‌ای
سخن گفت با عابدی کله‌ای
که من فر فرماندهی داشتم
به سر بر کلاه مهی داشتم
The sky gave assistance and Vict’ry was pleased;
With the arm of Good Fortune, I Babylon seized.
I had cherished a longing to conquer Kirman?-
But the worms ate my head and so thwarted my plan.
سپهرم مدد کرد و نصرت وفاق
گرفتم به بازوی دولت عراق
طمع کرده بودم که کرمان خورم
که ناگه بخوردند کرمان سرم 
From your mind’s lug, the cotton of negligence clear!
For advice from the dead now arrives at your ear.”  
بکن پنبه غفلت از گوش هوش
که از مردگان پندت آید به گوش
