Par Shahbaz Se Mumkin Nahin Parwaz-e-Magas
Love is not by nature ignoble like lust;
You can’t expect flight of a fly from falcon’s wings.
Ke Nasheman Ho Anadil Pe Garan Misl-e-Qafas
The way of the garden can be changed thus:
The nightingales should grow sick of their nests like a cage.
Hai Kahan Qafla-e-Mouj Ko Parwaye Jaras!
Those waiting for the bugle‐call are not ready for the journey,
Murda Hai, Mang Ke Laya Hai Farangi Se Nafas
The pupil in schools looks alive; nay, he is dead;
He had borrowed his breath from the Franks.
Mard-e-Momin Ki Nigah-e-Galat Andaz Hai Bas!
If you wish to nourish your heart
You need only the stray look of a man of faith.
