Ghazal 37

Nazm 40

Sher 38

kis tarah jamā kījiye ab apne aap ko

kāġhaz bikhar rahe haiñ purānī kitāb ke

kis tarah jama kijiye ab apne aap ko

kaghaz bikhar rahe hain purani kitab ke

mere TuuTe hausle ke par nikalte dekh kar

us ne dīvāroñ ko apnī aur ūñchā kar diyā

mere TuTe hausle ke par nikalte dekh kar

us ne diwaron ko apni aur uncha kar diya

chup-chāp baiThe rahte haiñ kuchh bolte nahīñ

bachche bigaḌ ga.e haiñ bahut dekh-bhāl se

chup-chap baiThe rahte hain kuchh bolte nahin

bachche bigaD gae hain bahut dekh-bhaal se
