Thanks Cum Complaint
Rakhta Hun Nihan Khana-e-Lahoot Se Pewand
Though unwise, thanks to God I must express
For bonds with celestial world that I possess.
Lahore Se Ta-Bakhak-e-Bukhara-o-Samarqand
My songs fresh zeal to hearts of men impart,
Their charm extends to lands that lie apart.
Murghan-e-Sehar Khawan Meri Sohbat Mein Hain Khoursand
In Autumn my breath makes birds that chirp in morn,
Imbibe much joy and feel no more forlorn.
Jis Dais Ke Bande Hain Ghulami Pe Razamand!
O God, to such a land I have been sent,
Where men in abject bondage feel content.
