Treasure Island

Ibn-e-Insha

(15 June 1927 - 11 January 1978 / Phillaur, Punjab / British India)

Kal chaudhwin ki rat thi shab bhar raha charcha tera


kal chaudhwin ki rat thi shab bhar raha charcha tera
kuch ne kaha ye chand hai kuch ne kaha chehra tera

ham bhi wahin maujud the ham se bhi sab pucha kiye
ham hans diye ham chup rahe manzur tha parda tera

is sheahr mein kis se milen ham se to chuti mahfilen
har shakhs tera nam le har shakhs diwana tera

kuche ko tere chor kar jogi hi ban jayen magar
jangal tere parbat tere basti teri sahra tera

ham aur rasm-e-bandagi ashuftagi uftadagi
ehsan hai kya kya tera ai husn-e-beparwa tera

do ashk jane kis liye palkon pe a kar tik gaye
altaf ki barish teri ikram ka darya tera

ai bedarg-o-beaman ham ne kabhi ki hai fugan
ham ko teri wahshat sahi ham ko sahi sauda tera

tu bewafa tu mahraban ham aur tujh se bad-guman
ham ne to pucha tha zara ye waqt kyun thehra tera

ham par ye sakhti ki nazar ham hain faqir-e-rahguzar
rasta kabhi roka tera daman kabhi thama tera

han han teri surat hasin lekin tu aisa bhi nahin
is shakhs k ashar se shohra hua kya kya tera

beshak usi ka dosh hai kahta nahin khamosh hai
tu ap kar aisi dawa bimar ho acha tera

bedard sunani ho to chal kahta hai kya achhi gazal
ashiq tera ruswa tera shayar tera 'Insha' tera

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
