Dil Dasht Hai Wafur-E-Tamanna Ghubar Hai

dil dasht hai vafūr-e-tamannā ġhubār hai

ai abr-e-nau-umīd tirā intizār hai

phir ustuvār rābta-e-sañg-o-sar huā

phir in dinoñ junūñ ko havā sāzgār hai

jāñ-dādgī kī rasm jagāo ki āj-kal

phir multafit havā-e-sar-e-rah-guzār hai

har nik.hat-e-ḳhayāl asīr-e-havā huī

har mauj-e-nūr kam-nigahī kī shikār hai

raushan-zamīr tīra-nasībī ḳhudā kī shaan

itnī sī ab hikāyat lail-o-nahār hai

haañ ai havā-e-dasht idhar shahr meñ bhī aa

mahbūs kab se nik.hat-e-gesu-e-yār hai

kahiye to kis tarah jo na kahiye to kis tarah

arz-e-suḳhan meñ lafz bhī be-e’tibār hai

lab-basta dil-e-kushāda chaman meñ guzāriye

ye ġhunchagī kī rasm guloñ kā shi.ār hai

‘bāqar’ ġhazal meñ ramz-o-kināya bajā magar

ye ehtiyāt harf-e-tamannā pe baar hai
