Parwin-Shakir

bahar-e-husn javan-marg surat-e-gul-e-tar

misal-e-khar magar umr-e-dard-e-ishq daraz

vo vidyapati ki shairi ki

masum-o-hasin-o-shokh radha

vo apne khayal ka kanhaiya

in shahron men DhunDne gai thi

dastur tha jin ka sang-bari

vo ‘faiz’-o-‘firaq’ ziyada

taqdis-e-badan ki naghma-khvan thi

tahzib-e-badan ki raz-dan thi

gulnar badan ki tahniyat men

gulnar labon se gul-fishan thi

lab-ashna lab ghazal ke misre

jism-ashna jism nazm-paikar

lafzon ki hatheliyan hinai

tashbihon ki ungliyan gulabi

sarsabz khayal ka gulistan

mubham se kuchh ansuon ke chashme

aahon ki vo halki si havaen

sad-barg hava men muntashir the

titli thi ki raqs kar rahi thi

aur dard ke badalon se chhan kar

naghmon ki phuvare pad rahi thi

pur-shor munafiqat ke bazar

afvahen farokht kar rahe the

vo apni shikasta shakhsiyat ko

ashar ki chadaron ke andar

is tarah sametne lagi thi

ehsas men aa rahi thi vusat

nazron ka ufuq badal raha tha

aur dard-e-jahan-e-adamiyat

tuute hue dil men Dhal raha tha

is alam-e-kaif-o-kam men ik din

ik hadse ka shikar ho kar

jab khuun ka kafan pahan liya to

udtin saliben nauha-khvan thiin

khamosh tha karb-e-khud-kalami

ab kuchh nahin rah gaya hai baaqi

baaqi hai sukhan ki dil-navazi

jannat men hai jashn-e-nau ka saman

mahfil men ‘majaz’-o-‘bairan’ hain

maujud hain ‘keats’ aur ‘shaili’

ye marg-e-javan ke saare ashiq

khush hain ki zamin-e-pak se ik

nau-marg-e-bahar aa gai hai

lipti hui khaak ki hai khushbu

aur saya-fagan sahab-e-rahmat
