Main Na Samjha Bulbul Be-Baal-O-Par Ne Kya Kaha

main na samjha bulbul be-bal-o-par ne kya kaha

gosh-e-gul men qasid-e-bad-e-sahar ne kya kaha

nazaa ke dam bhi zi-bas laila ko maane tha hijab

chupke chupke roi aur us nauhagar ne kya kaha

tere vahshi se abas tujh ko ḳhafa karte hain log

sab ye baten jhuth thiin us be-ḳhabar ne kya kaha

sainkadon ranginiyan paida kiin us ne vaqt-e-qasd

ḳhun-e-majnun se zaban-e-neshtar ne kya kaha

nama-bar ko galiyan diin us ne sun kar mera naam

munh ko takta rah gaya aur nama-bar ne kya kaha

ho gaya us ko pahan kar aur bhi maghrur vo

kaan men us shoḳh ke silk-e-guhar ne kya kaha

jodna un ka nihayat ai ‘havas’ dushvar tha

dil ke tukde dekh mere shishagar ne kya kaha
