Is this Farsi...?

Postby 342 » 2019-11-18, 16:46

Hi, can anyone tell me if the text in these images is Farsi? What do they say?

Thanks!

Yes, this is Persian. It's a couple of lines from Nizami's Khamsa.

به چشم خویش دیدم در گذرگاه
که زد بر جان موری مرغکی راه
هنوز از صید منقارش نپرداخت
که مرغی دیگر آمد کار او ساخت

(albeit the images are out of order).

This is fantastic, thank you. Is there a published translation of the Khamsa online?
Or could you let me know the meaning?

Thanks!

This part is from the story of Khosrow and Shirin in the Khamsa. You can read it in English here.

Thank you for your help with this. Please could you help me to translate the lines -- or to identify the section in the translation where it can be found...?

Many thanks again.
