You Can Buy Everyone With Gold By Hafiz Shirazi

You can buy everyone with gold;
Either in one shot, or slowly are sold.
Even the narcissus, pride of the world,
Sold itself, why, its crown of gold behold.

خوبان جـهان صید توان کرد بـه زر
خوش خوش بر از ایشان بتوان خورد به زر
نرگـس که کله دار جهان است ببین
کاو نیز چـگونـه سر درآورد بـه زر
