The lover’s attempted perfidy

The lover’s attempted perfidy

The lover’s attempted perfidy, and how the beloved scolded him. قصد خیانت کردن عاشق و بانگ بر زدن معشوق بر وی

چونک تنهااش بدید آن ساده مرد
زود او قصد کنار و بوسه کرد
When that simpleton found her alone, at once he attempted to embrace and kiss her.
بانگ بر وی زد به هیبت آن نگار
که مرو گستاخ ادب را هوش دار
The beauty with awesome mien raised her voice against him, saying, “Do not behave impudently, be mindful of good manners!”
گفت آخر خلوتست و خلق نی
آب حاضر تشنه‌ی هم‌چون منی
He said, “Why, there is privacy, and no people (present): the water at hand, and a thirsty man like me!
کس نمی‌جنبد درینجا جز که باد
کیست حاضر کیست مانع زین گشاد
None is moving here but the wind. Who is present? Who will hinder (me) from this conquest?”
گفت ای شیدا تو ابله بوده‌ای
ابلهی وز عاقلان نشنوده‌ای
“O madman,” said she, “thou hast been a fool: a fool thou art and hast not hearkened to the wise.
باد را دیدی که می‌جنبد بدان
بادجنبانیست اینجا بادران
Thou sawest the wind moving: know that a Mover of the wind is here, who drives the wind along.”
مروحهى تصريف صنع ايزدش
زد بر اين باد و همىجنباندش
The fan, namely, the direction of its course by God’s action, smote upon this wind and is always keeping it in movement.
جزو بادی که به حکم ما درست
بادبیزن تا نجنبانی نجست
The portion of wind (air) that is in our control does not stir till you move the fan.
جنبش این جزو باد ای ساده مرد
بی‌تو و بی‌بادبیزن سر نکرد
Without you and without the fan the movement of this portion of wind (air) does not arise, O simpleton.
جنبش باد نفس کاندر لبست
تابع تصریف جان و قالبست
The movement of the wind of the breath, which is on the lips, follows the course directed by the spirit and the body.
گاه دم را مدح و پیغامی کنی
گاه دم را هجو و دشنامی کنی
At one time you make the breath to be a eulogy and a (pleasing) message; at another time you make the breath to be a satire and a foul speech.
پس بدان احوال دیگر بادها
که ز جز وی کل می‌بیند نهی
Understand, then, (from this case) the cases of other winds; for from a part the intellect perceives the whole.
باد را حق گه بهاری می‌کند
در دیش زین لطف عاری می‌کند
God sometimes makes the wind vernal: in December He divests it of this kindliness.
بر گروه عاد صرصر می‌کند
باز بر هودش معطر می‌کند
He makes it a sarsar (intensely cold and violent) for the people of ‘Ád; again, He makes it perfumed (balmy) for Húd.
می‌کند یک باد را زهر سموم
مر صبا را می‌کند خرم‌قدوم
One wind He makes (deadly as) the poison of the simoom; He (also) makes the advent of the east-wind to be delightful.
باد دم را بر تو بنهاد او اساس
تا کنی هر باد را بر وی قیاس
He hath founded (stablished) the wind of the breath in you, in order that thereby you may judge analogically of every (other) wind.
دم نمی‌گردد سخن بی‌لطف و قهر
بر گروهی شهد و بر قومیست زهر
The breath does not become speech without (assuming the quality of) gentleness or harshness: it is honey for one set of people and poison for another class.
مروحه جنبان پی انعام کس
وز برای قهر هر پشه و مگس
The fan is moving for the benefit of the (favoured) person, and for the subjugation of every fly and gnat.
مروحه‌ی تقدیر ربانی چرا
پر نباشد ز امتحان و ابتلا
Why (then) should not the fan of Divine fore-ordainment be fraught with trial and probation (by means of good and evil)?
چونک جزو باد دم یا مروحه
نیست الا مفسده یا مصلحه
Inasmuch as the part, namely, the wind of the breath or the fan, is naught but a cause of injury or advantage,
این شمال و این صبا و این دبور
کی بود از لطف و از انعام دور
How should this north-wind and this east-wind and this west- wind be remote from (showing) favour and conferring bounty?
یک کف گندم ز انباری ببین
فهم کن کان جمله باشد همچنین
Look at a handful of wheat froth a granary, and apprehend that the whole of it will be just like this (handful).
کل باد از برج باد آسمان
کی جهد بی مروحه‌ی آن بادران
How should the whole of the wind rush forth from the mansion of the wind in Heaven without (being impelled by) the fan of that Driver of the wind?
بر سر خرمن به وقت انتقاد
نه که فلاحان ز حق جویند باد
Is it not the fact that at winnowing-time the labourers on the threshing-floor beseech God for wind,
تا جدا گردد ز گندم کاهها
تا به انباری رود یا چاهها
In order that the straws may be separated from the wheat, so that it may go into a granary or pits?
چون بماند دیر آن باد وزان
جمله را بینی به حق لابه‌کنان
When the blowing wind is long delayed, you may see them all making humble entreaty to God.
همچنین در طلق آن باد ولاد
گر نیاید بانگ درد آید که داد
Likewise, in parturition, if the wind of childbirth do not come, there comes (from the mother) a woeful cry for help.
گر نمی‌دانند کش راننده اوست
باد را پس کردن زاری چه خوست
If they (that desire the wind) are not aware that He is its Driver, then what disposes (them) to pray piteously for the wind?
اهل کشتی همچنین جویای باد
جمله خواهانش از آن رب العباد
Likewise, those in ship are desirous of the wind: they all are begging for it from the Lord of Mankind.
همچنین در درد دندانها ز باد
دفع می‌خواهی بسوز و اعتقاد
Likewise, in (the case of) toothache you beg ardently and earnestly to be defended from the wind.
از خدا لابه‌کنان آن جندیان
که بده باد ظفر ای کامران
The soldiers beseech God humbly, saying, “Give (us) the wind of victory, O Thou whose every wish is fulfilled!”
رقعه‌ی تعویذ می‌خواهند نیز
در شکنجه‌ی طلق زن از هر عزیز
Also, in the throes of childbirth, folk beg from every venerated (saint) a piece of paper inscribed with a charm (against evil).
پس همه دانسته‌اند آن را یقین
که فرستد باد رب‌العالمین
Therefore all have known for certain that the wind is sent by the Lord of created beings.
پس یقین در عقل هر داننده هست
اینک با جنبنده جنباننده هست
Therefore in the mind of every one possessing knowledge this is certain, that with everything that moves there is a mover.
گر تو او را می‌نبینی در نظر
فهم کن آن را به اظهار اثر
If you do not see him visibly, apprehend him by means of the manifestation of the effect.
تن به جان جنبد نمی‌بینی تو جان
لیک از جنبیدن تن جان بدان
The body is moved by the spirit: you do not seethe spirit; but from the movement of the body know the spirit (to be its mover).
گفت او گر ابلهم من در ادب
زیرکم اندر وفا و در طلب
He (the lover) said, “If I am foolish in manners, I am wise in respect of faithfulness and (eager) pursuit.”
گفت ادب این بود خود که دیده شد
آن دگر را خود همی‌دانی تو لد
She replied, “Truly the manners were these which have been seen; as for the other (things), thou thyself knowest, perverse fellow!
