Ghazals Of Ghalib

The Almighty Of Rekhta

Mirza Asadullah Khan (Ghalib)-27-12-1797(Agra) To 15-02-1869 (Delhi)

English Poetry Sublimation

 

 

 

 

 

Rays are feeble, candle is trembling,

 

Parrot is also trying to break the cage,

 

Numerous mourners are on the paper,

 

Scattered at all the corners---

 

Looking at me for the new hope,

 

I am not defunct,

 

Still I am not deft,

 

Unable to defy the angel,

 

Again I am not the sage.

 

 

My children,

 

I provided you all and individual identity,

 

Spread out in the time,

 

go to the flowers,

 

Tell them the message as bee,

 

Life is a river,

 

It has to be sublimated by the sea.
