هین بیا بلقیس ورنه بد شود
لشکرت خصمت شود مرتد شود

پرده‌دار تو درت را بر کند
جان تو با تو به جان خصمی کند
Thy chamberlain will destroy thy door: thy soul with (all) its soul will act as an enemy towards thee.”

که تو بی من نقش گرمابه بدی
When thou hast come to me, thou thyself wilt know that without me thou wert (as) a picture in the bath-house.”

آن عرض باشد که فرع او شدست
