The Manifestation Of Beauty
Palta Hai Jise Aghosh-e-Takhiyyul Mein Shabab
Beauty’s manifestation which gives restlessness to Longing
Which youth nurtures in its fancy’s lap
Aik Afsana-e-Rangeen Hai Jawani Jis Se
By which this ephemeral universe becomes eternal
By which youth becomes a colorful tale
Manzar-e-Alam-e-Hazir Se Gurezan Hona
Which teaches us to be meditating
To be escaping the present state’s scene
Aqal Karti Hai Taasar Ki Ghulami Jis Se
Which removes the immaturity of perceptions
Which makes Intellect a slave to impressions
Khatam-e-Dehr Mein Ya Rab Woh Nageen Hai Ke Nahin
Ah! Does that Beauty exist anywhere or not?
O Lord! Does that jewel exist on the universe’s ring?
