    sañg-dil rivājoñ

    ye imārat-e-kohna

    apne aap par nādim

    apne bojh se larzāñ

    jis zarra zarra hai

    ḳhud-shikastagī sāmāñ

    sab ḳhamīda dīvāreñ

    sab jhukī huī guḌiyāñ

    TO A girl

    sañg-dil rivājoñ ke

    ḳhasta-hāl zindāñ meñ

    ik sadā-e-mastāna

    ek raqs-e-rindāna

    ye imārat-e-kohna TuuT bhī to saktī hai

    ye asīr-e-shahzādī chhūT bhī to saktī hai

    Bricks gaping, roof sagging,

    The ancient House of Cruel Customs

    Totters under its own weight.

    ye asīr-e-shahzādī

    In a decaying cell

    Of the House of Cruel Customs

    The walls are buckling.

    sang-dil riwajon ki

    ye imarat-e-kohna

    apne aap par nadim

    apne bojh se larzan

    jis ka zarra zarra hai

    KHud-shikastagi saman

    sab KHamida diwaren

    sab jhuki hui guDiyan

    TO A girl

    sang-dil riwajon ke

    KHasta-haal zindan mein

    ek sada-e-mastana

    ek raqs-e-rindana

    ye imarat-e-kohna TuT bhi to sakti hai

    ye asir-e-shahzadi chhuT bhi to sakti hai

    Bricks gaping, roof sagging,

    The ancient House of Cruel Customs

    Totters under its own weight.

    ye asir-e-shahzadi

    In a decaying cell

    Of the House of Cruel Customs

    The walls are buckling.
