Shamshir-E-Barhana Mang Ghazab Baalon Ki Mahak Phir Waisi Hi

shamshir-e-barhana maang ghazab balon ki mahak phir vaisi hi

juude ki gundhavat qahr-e-khuda balon ki mahak phir vaisi hi

razor-sharp hair’s parting line, the luster in her eye’s divine

enrapturing, her coiffure’s braid, scent of her tresses does pervade

ankhen hain katora si vo sitam gardan hai surahi-dar ghazab

aur usi men sharab-e-surkhi-e-pan rakhti hai jhalak phir vaisi hi

——–

har baat men us ki garmi hai har naaz men us ke shokhi hai

qamat hai qayamat chaal pari chalne men phadak phir vaisi hi

warmth in everything she says, in all her airs there mischief plays

slender and tall, fairy like grace, a flutter in her every pace

gar rang bhabuka atish hai aur biini shola-e-sarkash hai

to bijli si kaunde hai pari aariz ki chamak phir vaisi hi

——–

nau-khez kuchen do ghuncha hain hai narm shikam ik khirman-e-gul

barik kamar jo shakh-e-gul rakhti hai lachak phir vaisi hi

——–

hai naaf koi girdab-e-bala aur gol surin ranen hain safa

hai saaq bilorin sham-e-ziya paanv ki kafak phir vaisi hi

——–

mahram hai habab-e-ab-e-ravan suraj ki kiran hai us pe lipat

jaali ki kurti hai vo bala gote ki dhanak phir vaisi hi

her breasts in silken bustier, rays of the sun adhere to her

her lacy blouse does so ignite, shimmering with golden light

vo gaae to aafat laae hai har taal men leve jaan nikal

naach us ka uthae sau fitne ghungru ki jhanak phir vaisi hi

when she sings storms are in spate, at every tune my life’s forfeit

her dancing raises mutiny, bells on her feet a symphony

har baat pe ham se vo jo ‘zafar’ karta hai lagavat muddat se

aur us ki chahat rakhte hain ham aaj talak phir vaisi hi

at every step she does restrain, zafar, for long I’ve tried in vain

and yet the love I’ve felt for her, does to this very day recur
