“You don’t know, musky-haired, my beautiful peri,
What was your servant before, in the prime of life.
With chovgans of curls, can you now straighten his camp?
And he was slender before, and the curls curled like a chovgan.
He was joyful and cheerful in those golden years,
Although he sometimes had a shortage of gold."
