Rubaiyat 12 of Hafiz (Persian-English Translation)

نی دولـت دنیا به ستـم می‌ارزد
نی لذت مستی‌اش الـم می‌ارزد
نـه هفت هزار ساله شادی جهان
این محنت هفت روزه غـم می‌ارزد

A straw is the value of my oppression.
Pleasure’s not worth one transgression.
Seven thousand years of heaven
Is not worth seven days of depression.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
