Ch 02 The Morals Of Dervishes Story 24

 Next Poem          

I complained to one of the sheikhs that a certain man had falsely accused me of lasciviousness. He replied: "Put him to shame by thy good conduct."

Be thou well behaved that a maligner
May not find occasion to speak of thy faults.
When the harp is in proper tune
How can the hand of the musician correct it?
