Advise of Nabbit Nakhjiran: Do Not Be Happy with this پند دادن خرگوش نخجیران را که بدین شاد مشوید

هین به ملک نوبتی شادی مکن
ای تو بسته‌‌ی نوبت آزادی مکن‌‌
Take heed! Do not exult in a kingdom bestowed in turns (passing from one to another),
O thou who art the bondsman of Vicissitude, do not act as though thou wert free!
آن که ملکش برتر از نوبت تنند
برتر از هفت انجمش نوبت زنند
(But) those for whom is prepared a kingdom beyond Vicissitude, for them the drums (of sovereignty) are beaten beyond the Seven Planets.
برتر از نوبت ملوک باقی‌‌اند
دور دایم روحها با ساقی‌‌اند
Beyond Vicissitude are the kings everlasting: their spirits are circling with the Cupbearer perpetually.
ترک این شرب ار بگویی یک دو روز
در کنی اندر شراب خلد پوز
If thou wilt renounce this drinking (of worldly pleasures) for a day or two (for thy brief lifetime), thou wilt dip thy mouth in the drink of Paradise.
