The Angels Bid Farewell To Adam
Khabar Nahin Ke Tu Khaki Hai Ye Ke Seemabi
You have been given the restlessness of Day and Night,
We know not whether you are made of clay or mercury;
Teri Sarisht Mein Hai Kokabi-o-Mehtabi
We hear you are created from clay,
But in your nature is the glitter of Stars and Moon.
Hazar Hosh Se Khushtar Teri Shukar Khawabi
Your sleep would be preferable over much wakefulness
If you could behold your own beauty even in a dream!
Issi Se Hai Tere Nakhl-e-Kuhan Ki Shadabi
Your morning sighs are invaluable
For they are the water to your ancient tree.
Ke Tere Saaz Ki Fitrat Ne Ki Hai Mizrabi
Your melody unravels the secret of life
For it is Nature that has attuned your organ.
