  • کشتن و مردن که بر نقش تن است ** چون انار و سیب را بشکستن است‌‌
  • Slaughter and death which befalls the bodily frame is like breaking pomegranates and apples:
  • آن چه شیرین است او شد ناردانگ ** و آن که پوسیده ست نبود غیر بانگ‌‌
  • That which is sweet becomes pomegranate-syrup, and that which is rotten is naught but noise:
  • آن چه با معنی است خود پیدا شود ** و آن چه پوسیده ست او رسوا شود

  • Beyond dispute, in this body the spirit devoid of reality is even as a wooden sword in the sheath:
  • تا غلاف اندر بود با قیمت است ** چون برون شد سوختن را آلت است‌‌
  • Whilst it remains in the sheath, it is (apparently) valuable, (but) when it has come forth it is an implement (only fit) for burning.
  • تیغ چوبین را مبر در کارزار ** بنگر اول تا نگردد کار زار
  • Do not take a wooden sword into the battle! First see (whether your sword is a real one), in order that your plight may not be wretched.
