Do Charagh

tirgi ke siyah-gharon se

shahparon ki sadaen aati hain

le ke jhonkon ki tez talvaren

thanDi thanDi havaen aati hain

barf ne jin pe dhaar rakkhi hai

ek maili dukan tiira o taar

ik charagh aur ek doshiza

ye bujhi si hai vo udaas sa hai

donon jadon ki lambi raton men

tirgi aur hava se ladte hain

tirgi uth rahi hai maidan se

fauj-dar-fauj badalon ki tarah

aur havaon ke haath hain gustakh

tode lete hain nanhe shole ko

noche lete hain maile anchal ko

ladki rah rah ke jism Dhanpti hai

shola rah rah ke thar tharata hai

nangi budhi zamin kanpti hai

tirgi ab siyah-samundar hai

aur hava ho gai hai divani

ya to donon charagh gul honge

ya karenge vo shola-afshani

phunk Dalenge tirgi ki mata

par mujhe e’timad hai in par

go gharib aur be-zaban se hain

donon hain aag donon hain shola

donon bijli ke khandan se hain
