Fervour For Action
Mullah Ki Shariat Mein Faqt Mast-e-Guftar
The mystic mode has naught except the inner changes of the heart;
The talk of Mullah on his creed is merely piece of fiery art.
Afkar Mein Sar-Mast, Na Khawabida Na Baidar
The poetʹs song of zeal bereft, is dead and struck with frost!
To outward eyes he seems awake, though in thoughts completely lost!
Ho Jis Ke Rag-e-Pay Mein Faqt Masti-e-Kirdar
Alas! my eyes do not behold the holy knight whose fervour high
May cause his blood to seethe and boil in veins that lend such might to thigh.
