With Fate You Still Hope To Trade By Hafiz Shirazi

With fate you still hope to trade;
Passage of time should make you afraid.
You said no color comes after black,
I said my black hair to white degrade.

از چرخ به هر گونه هـمی‌دار امید
وز گردش روزگار می‌لرز چو بید
گفتی که پس از سیاه رنگی نبود
پس موی سیاه من چرا گشت سفید
