quatrain 1521

From sunlight, two translations of quatrain #1521:
It's good to leave each day behind,
like flowing water, free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told.
Today new seeds are growing.

trans by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi

happiness is to reach
the next post every day
like flowing water
free from stillness
and melancholy
yesterday is gone and
took away its talk
today we must live
a fresh story again

trans by Nader Khalili
