Kiss Me Poem by Mirza Ghalib

Kiss Me

Rating: 2.8

Ghooncha-e-nashiguftha ko dhoor se math dikha key yoon
Bosey ko poonchtha houn mein munh se muchey batha ki yoon


Don't stay afar pouting your lips at me like a rosebud;
I asked you for a kiss--let your lips answer my plea.

What a great translation of poetic lines! But the original one is really greater. Ghalib had always been ghalib on his contemporaries as well as successors. Great lines.

Very short, much like that insignificant kiss on the lips!
