I Wish That Fate Would Cease This Carnage, By Hafiz Shirazi

I wish that fate would cease this carnage,
And to the lovers give their due wage.
In times of youth the rein in my hands,
Now on the saddle, I ride in old age.

ای کاش که بخـت سازگاری کردی
با جور زمانـه یار یاری کردی
از دسـت جوانی‌ام چو بربود عـنان
پیری چو رکاب پایداری کردی
