The cow one day started saying to the camel


The cow one day started saying to the camel 
Nothing in the world rests in one condition

I am ignominious by breaking my rope
I hear you have also broken your nose string

Though you are important in India for political reasons 
But due to railway the Arabian desert finds no use for you

Till yesterday you were avoiding the cow's  companionship
The voice of never on your hanging lips was persistent

What is the matter that you are so favorable to me today
That old displeasure does not exist  in your heart today

Hearing this speech the camel bashfully said
I am also to be counted among your lovers

The envy of hundreds of camel's ogle is your one frisk
Since long I am the lover of such a frisk

The effects of your tumults have spread in the forest such 
That speech has  produced its taste even among the speechless

I am living only in one desert since a long time 
As I have nothing I am fed on  borrowed money

If goat, camel, cow, leopard and the lame donkey
All exist in the same condition we shall have  prestige

If the gardener learns the lesson of uniformity
Why should not the gardens birds live in harmony

Give me also the same cup as only this appears proper 
You should be intoxicated, your companions should also be intoxicated

The patched garment of Hafiz is worthless, color him with wine
Then bring him to the market, lost and intoxicated
