Comments about Shad Azimabadi
The Eyes Are Black And Beautiful Complexion Fair And Sweet.
The eyes are black and beautiful complexion fair and sweet.
Long and loose hang the locks the face innocence breathes.
The brow is broad and winsome eyebrows arched and sharp.
The heart feels stirrings of love the looks downward creep.
Restlessness assails the heart which longs since eve to weep.
Love is in its nascent form in gentle waves the madness leaps.
The false promises that it makes somewhat its worth decrease.
Why shouldn't your lyric Shad touch our heart and soul?
They describe the facts of life and sketch the life complete.
