Rumi Quatrain, #1789 Foruzanfar

O Moon, you are radiant- full of light,
But far from my idol’s brilliant face!
O Narcissus, ‘though you be lit with joy-
Leave excused. You have yet to see her face!

ای ماه اگرچه روشن و پر نوری
از روشنی روی بت من دوری
وی نرگس اگرچه تازه و مخموری
رو چشم بتم ندیده ای معذوری
