Poet Belongs To Lucknow - Poem by Suhail Kakorvi

O! Basheer thou art as fresh as spring of Lucknow
Due to thee remains so the majesty of Lucknow
Thou turned wounds into blossoming of flowers
Whenever pricked thee thorns Of Lucknow
Wherever thou recited thy poems
People called thee then pride of Lucknow
Glare the traditions therein in thy poetry
Whenever he becomes playful while converse
I at that juncture call him vivacious of Lucknow
But new style as well runs with reliability of Lucknow
No one reached goal ever before thee
O! with fast prudence thou art cavalryman of Lucknow
Waseem was with thee in assemblies of poetry here
Those were the days of flowering memorable of Lucknow
Zia Faruqi who cherishes affection for Basheer in heart
Latent in his eyes invariably sights of Lucknow
Arshad, Tauseef and Tarun are thy admirers
In whose minds bright are the sparks of Lucknow
Tariq Qamar and Rizwaan relish thy company
And Sanjay brands thee as rose of Lucknow
Rajeev Sahir accepted thee as spiritual guide
Shakir Hashmi considers thee love inspired of Lucknow
Malikzada along with Athar Nabi are definite
That thou art gem of a person of Lucknow
Be it Anees Ansari, Ashar, Nazim or Hilal
Call thee atmosphere pleasant of Lucknow
Met and bloomed artist of photography, my Suboor
In whose skill flows the Cascade of Lucknow
Affirmer of the are Ibrahim Alvi and Waqar
Play in glee the musical wire must the wires of Lucknow
Asad and Sachin love to hear thy couplets
And Mahmood says thou cast redness of Lucknow
Raees Ansari for sure is among thy friends
Thou art exclusive for Haider Alvi exclusive Of Lucknow
Meraaj Sahil acknowledge thy poetic caliber
To thee and he favors the fertile field of Lucknow
Zafar Akbarabadi opines true about thee
says that due to thee radiant are surroundings of Lucknow
Rafat Shaida and khalid, Basheer likes their longing for poetry
They are definitely poets who impart Lucknow
Mohammad Ali Sahil two greats shine in his name
Basheer finds in his poetry revealed Lucknow
Thy creating of poems persists therein in our hearts
Colors of that are the colors of beauty of Lucknow

Aye Basheer-e khushnawa taza bahare Lucknow
Ab to bus tujhse hi qaim hai waqare Lucknow
Tune un zakhmon se tameere gulistan kardiya
Jab kabhi tujhko chubhe aye dost khare Lucknow
Jis kisi mehfil main bbhi tune padha apna kalaam
Log keh uthe ki tu hai iftikhare Lucknow
Shairi men teri roshan hain rawayaate ghazal
Tarze nau men tere jaari aitbaare Lucknow
Tujhse aage koi bhi manzil pe pahoncha hi nahin
Aye ke aqle tezrau aye shehsaware Lucknow
Jab kabhi mayel ba shokhi unka hota hai mizaaj
Main bhi keh deta hun unko fitnakaare Lucknow
Saath tere mehfile shero adab men the Waseem
Wo bahare bekaran wo yaadgare Lucknow
Tere maddahon men hain Tauseef, Arshad aur Tarun
Jinke zehnon men farozan hain Sharare Lucknow
Khush rifaqat se teri Rizwaan aur Tariq Qamar
keh rahe hain tujhko sanjay gulazaare Lucknow
Kehte hain Rajeev Sahir tujhko ruhaani guru
Aur Shakir Hashmi ulfat sheaare Lucknow
Wo Anees Ansari, Ashar aur Nazim aur Hilal
Tujhko kehte hain fazaye khushgaware Lucknow
Wo Malikzadah ke hon Athar Nabi samjhe sahih
Tu hai beshak gauhare yak aabdaare Lucknow
Tujhse mil kar khil uthe tasweerkash mere Suboor
jinke fan men khud hai jaari aabshare Lucknow
Motarif tere hain Ibrahim Alvi aur Waqaar
Tu khushi se ched ispar ched tare Lucknow
Han Asad ko aur Sachin ko sher unke hain pasand
Kehte bhain Mahmood unko lalakare Lucknow
Hain Raees Ansari shamil zumrae ahbaab men
Haider Alvi ke liye wo shahkare Lucknow

Wo Zia Frooqi jinke dil men hai rabte Basheer
Unki nazron men nehan hai intizaare Lucknow

Rafat o khalid ke sheri zauq ke qail Basheer
Ye sukhanwar hain ki jo hain aashkare Lucknow
Apne Sahil men darakhshan hain Mohammad aur Ali
Han Basheer inko inko kahe hain tazakare Lucknow
Woh ghazalgoi hamare zehno dil men hai Suhail
Jiski sari rangaten akse nigare Lucknow

The being of branch of tree began now to burn

    Impeccable urdu poetry of great beauty. It is a great tribute to Janaab Bashir Faruqui Sahab, The city of Lucknow and all those urdu poets who have worked hard for the furtherance and conservation of Lucknow's rich culture and literary traditions. So nice of you to have recalled Bashir Sahab's grandson Adeeb (literal meaning 'writer') on this occasion.
