Story of Tree and Squash
نشنیدهای که زیر چناری کدو بنی بر رست و بردوید برو بر به روز بیست؟
پرسید از آن چنار که تو چند سالهای؟
گفتا دویست باشد و اکنون زیادتی است
خندید ازو کدو که من از تو به بیست روز
بر تر شدم بگو تو که این کاهلی ز چیست
او را چنار گفت که امروز ای کدو
با تو مرا هنوز نه هنگام داوری است
فردا که بر من و تو وزد باد مهرگان
آنگه شود پدید که از ما دو مرد کیست
Have you heard? A squash vine grew beneath a towering tree.
In only twenty days it grew and spread and put forth fruit.
Of the tree it asked: “How old are you? How many years?”
Replied the tree: “Two hundred it would be, and surely more.”
The squash laughed and said: “Look, in twenty days, I’ve done
More than you; tell me, why are you so slow?”
The tree responded: “O little Squash, today is not the day
of reckoning between the two of us.
"Tomorrow, when winds of autumn howl down on you me,
then shall it be known for sure which one of us is the most resilient!”
