Na Puchho Ki Qaem Ka Kya Haal Hai

na pūchho ki ‘qā.em’ kā kyā haal hai

kuchh ik Dher haDDiyoñ kā yā khaal hai

jo baiThe to hai rū-e-qālīñ kā naqsh

khaḌā ho to kāġhaz kī timsāl hai

khaTaktā hai pahlū meñ yuuñ ham-nashīñ

kahe to ye dil tiir kī bhaal hai

giraftār hai jo tirī zulf kā

vo har qaid se fāriġh-ul-bāl hai

uThā rauñd Daale ik aalim ke dil

bhalā shoḳh ye bhī koī chaal hai

ulajhtā hai jī shaiḳh kī riish dekh

vo sach hai misl baal janjāl hai

dhaḌakne kā dil par hai gaahe hujūm

gahe chashm girya kī pāmāl hai

ye goyā dar-e-daulat-e-ishq par

dil o diida sāmān ghaḌiyāl hai

ḳhush aa.ī hai ‘qā.em’ yahī gar zamīñ

to phir kah na mazmūñ kā kyā kaal hai
