جمله برخیزید تا بیرون رویم تا بر آن سر نهان واقف شویم
Arise,all(of you), that we may go forth, so that we may be come acquainted with that hidden secret.
در فلان صحرا درختی هست زفت شاخهااش انبه و بسیار و چفت
In such and such a plain there is a huge tree, its boughs dense and numerous and curved.
سخت راسخ خیمه‌گاه و میخ او بوی خون می‌آیدم از بیخ او
Its tent and tent-pegs are very firm; from its roots the smell of blood is coining to me.
خون شدست اندر بن آن خوش درخت خواجه راکشتست این منحوس‌بخت
Murder has been done at the bottom of that goodly tree: this man of sinister fortune has killed his master.
تا کنون حلم خدا پوشید آن آخر از ناشکری آن قلتبان
The clemency, of God has concealed that (crime) till now, (but) at last.(it has come to ‘light) through the ingratitude of that scoundrel,
که عیال خواجه را روزی ندید نه بنوروز و نه موسمهای عید
