Separation

Introduction

This poem was written during the period of Allamah Iqbal's stay in Europe and expresses the pangs of separation from the homeland.

Translation
I am wandering in search of a secluded corner
I have taken refuge at this mountain's side

Attraction of springs in their broken songs is excellent
Like the infant's supplication, who is learning to speak

The evening stars are established on the throne of twilight's rubies
The spectacle of the evening's beauty is Paradise for the observant's eye

Silence of separation's evening was an excuse to me
Someone's memory taught singing of this ode to me

This is the state of my impatient soul
I am like the small baby who is left alone

He starts the music in the darkness of the night
He considers his own voice as someone else's voice

In this way I give message of patience to my heart
In other words I beguile the night of separation
