Three butterflies

All together, we are of three butterflies
We’re but fairy tails, in the world of love

First saw a fire and said
Alas, I’ve discovered love

Second one flew near the fire and said
I’m burning in this love

Third one threw itself in fire and said
Yes, indeed, this is the meaning of love
– poem by Attar

در جهان عاشقان افسانه ایم
اولی خود را به شمع نزدیک کرد
گفت آری من یافتم معنای عشق
دومی نزدیک شعله بال زد
گفت حال من سوختم در سوز عشق
سومی خود داخل آتش فکند
آری آری این بود معنای عشق
