This Frozen Night - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan
The vaults of heaven did not break,
This frozen night did not bring a rain.
The citadels of hardened metal,
Did not melt.
The hearts did not sing the chants
Of love. The dead either remained,
Eager for burial.
This heavy mist of the dews hanging,
With the helpless air of dampness,
Neither the winter brought shivers.
The tenderness in the heart,
Was either a lament of hope.
The stars did not tell.
The settled storm of great tumult,
The sea is back to the shore.
The moon shall shine in the dark,
The sun bring warmth again.
