Attaar- Poem of the Butterflies

: سه پروانه - شعر از عطار ... با صدای سالار عقیلی

جملگی در حکم سه پروانه ایم "

در جهان عاشقان افسانه ایم

اولی* خود را به شمع نزدیک کرد

گفت هان من یافتم معنای عشق

دومی* نزدیک شعله بال زد

گفت هان من سوختم در سوز عشق

سومی* خود داخل آتش فکند

" آری آری این بود معنای عشق
/ عطار نیشابوری

"All of us are in reality like three butterflies
We're the fable , in the lover's oasis

The first came near the candle
and said : ' I've discovered the meaning of love '

The second fluttered its wing near the flame
and said : ' I've been burned by the fire of love '

The third threw himself into the fire
Yes ... Yes ... This is the meaning of love ..."
