It is said in a prov., الصَّيْفَ ضَيَّعْتِ اللَّبَنَ [In the spring, or in the summer, thou losedst the milk], in which the ت is with kesr when the words are addressed to a male, or to a female, or to a pl. number, because originally addressed to a woman, the wife of a wealthy man, whom she disliked because of his being aged, wherefore he divorced her, and a poor man married her, and she sent to her first husband requesting a gift, and he answered her thus; (Ṣ, O, Ḳ;*) الصيف being in the accus. case as an adv. n.: so says Yaạḳoob: (Ṣ, O:) or El-Aswad Ibn-Hurmuz divorced his wife El-'Anood Esh-Shenneeyeh, (O, Ḳ,) of the BenooShenn, (TA,) preferring to her a beautiful and wealthy woman of his people; (O, Ḳ;*) then there occurred between them what led to their separation, and he sought to obtain [again] El-'Anood, and sent a message to her; but in replying to him she said,

* أَنْشَأْتَ تَطْلُبُ وَصْلَنَا *
* فِى الصَّيْفِ ضَيَّعْتَ اللَّبَنْ *

[Thou hast begun to seek our union: in the spring, or in the summer, thou losedst the milk]: (O,* Ḳ:) the ت in this case being with fet-ḥ. (Ḳ. [See more in Freytag's Arab. Prov. ii. 197-8, or in Ḥar p. 577; in both of which, however, and in the O, ضيّعت is with kesr in the latter case, as in the former.]) [One says also, ضيّع عَهْدَهُ, meaning He broke his compact, contract, or covenant]. The phrase, in a trad.,نَهَى عَنْ إِضَاعَةِ↓ المَالِ means He forbade the expending of wealth otherwise than in obedience to God, and the squandering thereof, and extravagance. (TA.)

(Ḥam ibid.) And إِنِّى لَأَرَى ضَيْعَةً لَا يُصْلِحُهَا إِلَّا ضَجْعَةٌ [Verily I see property that nothing but a sleep will restore to a right state] a prov.; said by a pastor whose camels had dispersed themselves, and who, desiring to collect them together, and being unable to do so, sought aid of sleep.

[properly thus termed]: (Mgh, O:) or, accord. to one relation of the trad., the word is ضَيْعَةً↓ [which is likewise an inf. n., and in this case to be expl. in the same manner]: (Mgh:) if read ضِيَاعًا, it would be pl. of ضَائِعٌ.
