Aata hai yaad mujhko

Aata Hai Yaad Mujhko
Allama Iqbal

aata hai yaad mujhko guzara hua zamana
vo baag ki bahaare vo sab ka chah-chahana

azaadiya kaha vo ab apne ghosale ki
apni Khushi se aana apni Khushi se jana

lagti ho chot dil par, aata hai yaad jis dam
shabanam ke aasoon par kaliyo ka muskurana

vo pyaarii pyaarii surat, vo kamini si murat
abad jis ke dam se tha mera aashiyana



Translation in English
memories of days gone by come back to me
that garden in spring, all that chitter chatter
that freedom of my nest
that coming and going as one pleased

it hurts my heart when i so recall
the petals glowing with those tears of dew
that lovely face, that peaceful abode
by which my whole world was alive


Rubaiyat
Omar Khayyam

Now the New Year reviving old Desires,
The thoughtful Soul to Solitude retires,
Where the White Hand Of Moses on the Bough Puts out,
and Jesus from the Ground suspires
