Ghazal no 369

Translated by: Charlotte De Grauw, Negar Ilghami

I expected the ones I loved to help me;
But this way of thinking was a mistake of mine;

In order to see when our friendship tree will be fruitful;
I planted a seed of friendship tree;(*1)

A derviš does not involve himself in arguments;
If not, I would have had many with you;

The way you were looking at me had lure of war;
Which I misread it for a peace offer;

The bush of your virtue and beauty was not blossomed by itself;
I put my effort to help you grow;

Even though a lot had happened, I never complained;
I always treated you with respect;

As you gave your heart to the kindness of others;
I no longer have hope for our union;

 “you yourself gave away your heart”, She said;
I didn’t send any daugachi to grab your heart and love;

*1 (I started a friendship and irrigated it by kindness, so that one day it comes back to me)

 

 

 

 

 

Ghazal no 369

Translated by: Hamid Eslamian

The eye of expectation of friendship from friends we had;
Verily, ’twas mistake that which we thought;

Let us see, when fruit, the tree of friendship will give;
Now, we have departed and a seed we have sown;

Not the way usage of the darvish is discussion;
If not, passed circumstances to thee we had;

The way of thy eye, battle’s deceit had;
We knew not and peace, we sowed;

Not of itself, heart-fascinating became the rose-bush of thy beauty;
On it, the breath of blessing, we established; 

Subtleties passed and complaint, none made;
Aside, dignity we put not;

Said Hafiz to us, thou thyself gavest thy heart;
To none, the tax-collector, we sent.
