In Times Of Youth, Drinking Is Better By Hafiz Shirazi

In times of youth, drinking is better.
With the joyful, linking is better.
The world is a mere temporal inn;
With the shipwrecked, sinking is better.

ایام شـباب اسـت شراب اولیتر
با سـبز خـطان باده ناب اولیتر
عالم همه سر به سر رباطیست خراب
در جای خراب هـم خراب اولیتر
