Ghazal

GHAZAL

A restless aching heart that throbs with Love
Is my life's only stock and hoard
Your joys of life consist of wealth and gold
That worldly Science and Arts to you afford.
The marvel wrought by thinkers wise and sage
Consists of problems stiff that thought provoke:
Mount Sinai, Pharoah's rout and Moses' Staff
Are miracles worked by those who God invoke.
1 have conferred a Muslim's name on you
For sake of courtesy, custom and routine
Though your breath is quite bereft of heat
Of Reckoning Day that shall emit blazing sheen.
My vest is torn to shreds and pieces since long
And this is due to my mind's frenzy great
Your mind is still intact and sound,
Wherefore impute the blame to me and slate?
You ought to keep your words within control,
If you seek the bounteous glance of Guide:
When you talk with those who insight own,
Be courteous much, by conduct nice abide.
That nation cannot come to shame at all,
Nor shall e'er come across or face disgrace,
Whose youth are blessed with. pluck and courage great,
And guard with zeal the prestige of their race.
