(Bang-e-Dra-082) Tanhai

Tanhai
Solitude

Tanhai-e-Shab Mein Hai Hazeen Kya
Anjum Nahin Tere Hum-Nasheen Kya?

Solitude, night—what pang is here?
Are not stars your comrades? Clear

Ye Riffat-e-Asman-e-Khamosh
Khawabidah Zameen, Jahan-e-Khamosh

Majesty of those silent skies,
Drowsed earth, deep silence of the worlds,

Ye Chand, Ye Dasht-o-Dar, Ye Kuhsar
Fitrat Hai Tamam Nasteran Zaar

That moon, that wilderness and hill—
White rose‐beds all creation fill.

Moti Khush Rang, Pyare Pyare
Yani Tere Aansuon Ke Tare

Sweet are the teardrops that have pearled
Like gleaming gems, like stars, your eyes;

Kis Shay Ki Tujhe Hawas Hai Ae Dil !
Qudrat Teri Hum-Nafas Hai Ae Dil !

But what thing do you crave? All Nature,
Oh my heart, is your fellow‐creature.
