The Almighty Of Rekhta

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

English Poetry Think Again

 



Should we taste agony as well wishers are there,

Should we accompany the storm as we are breathing air.

 

We rescued you from the battle field and gifted you the throne,

Now started the tale of difficulties, should we tremble with fear.

 

At night in the pleasant dream was sleeping embracing a fairy,

Dawn has shown the fact, so should we pay pay the sigh a dear.

 

They may be thunderous sound and lightning, who can flee from doomsday,

So, should we deprive from exquisite thought of flowers, and be soaked in tear.

 

It is drunkard or restraint, after all tavern is the ultimate goal,

While guide is retired on the road should we be liberated without care.

 

Due to misunderstanding of flowers, Nightingale is deserting the garden,

Because there is no breeze from your shawl, should we leave our nest in fear.

 

Now your tyranny remains untold, you are spared from base accusation,

Now well decorated he is going to tavern, if we are scared it is not rare.
