  • A mutual embracing, like (that of) Wís and Rámín, is obligatory (Divinely ordained) between eternal and non-eternal and between substance and accident;

  • Story of Imra’u ’l-Qays, who was the king of the Arabs and exceedingly handsome: he was the Joseph of his time, and the Arab women were desperately in love with him, like Zalíkhá (with Joseph). He had the poetic genius (and composed the ode beginning)— “Halt, let us weep in memory of a beloved and a dwelling-place.” Since all the women desired him with (heart and) soul, one may well wonder what was the object of his love-songs and lamentations. Surely he knew that all these (beauteous forms) are copies of a (unique) picture which have been drawn (by the Artist) on frames of earth. At last there came to this Imra’u ’l-Qays such a (spiritual) experience that in the middle of the night he fled from his kingdom and children and concealed himself in the garb of a dervish and wandered from that clime to another clime in search of Him who transcends all climes: “He chooseth for His mercy whom He will”; and so forth.

  • Imra’u ’l-Qays was weary of his empire: Love carried him away from the country of the Arabs,
  • امرء القیس از ممالک خشک‌لب  ** هم کشیدش عشق از خطه‌ی عرب 
  • So that he came and worked as a brick-maker at Tabúk. The king was told that a royal personage,
  • تا بیامد خشت می‌زد در تبوک  ** با ملک گفتند شاهی از ملوک 
  • Imra’u ’l-Qays (by name), having fallen a prey to Love, had come thither and was making bricks by (his own) labour.
  • امرء القیس آمدست این‌جا به کد  ** در شکار عشق و خشتی می‌زند 
  • The king rose up and went to him at night and said to him, “O king of beauteous countenance,
  • آن ملک برخاست شب شد پیش او  ** گفته او را ای ملیک خوب‌رو 
  • Thou art the Joseph of the age. Two empires have become entirely subject to thee—(one), of the territories (under thy sway), and (the other), of Beauty. 3990

  • فلسفه گفتش بسی و او خموش  ** ناگهان وا کرد از سر روی‌پوش 
  • Think what (secrets) of love and passion he (must have) whispered into his ear! Immediately he made him a crazy wanderer like himself. 3995
  • تا چه گفتش او به گوش از عشق و درد  ** هم‌چو خود در حال سرگردانش کرد 
  • He (the king of Tabúk) took his hand and accompanied him: he too renounced his throne and (royal) belt.
  • دست او بگرفت و با او یار شد  ** او هم از تخت و کمر بیزار شد 
  • These two kings went to distant lands: not once (only) has Love committed this crime.
  • تا بلاد دور رفتند این دو شه  ** عشق یک کرت نکردست این گنه 
  • It (Love) is honey for the grown-up and milk for children: for every boat it is (like) the last bale (which causes the boat to founder).
