Che Kafarana Qimar-E-Hiyat Mee Bazi
Kh Ba Zamana Ba-Sazi Bakhud Namee Sazi
How heretically do you play the game of life?
you adjust yourself to times, rather than to thine self.
Digar Bamadrasa Haye Haram Namee Beenam
I no longer see in the schools
heart of Junaid and insight of Ghazali and Razi.
Bahukam-E-Mufti-E-Azam Ke Fitrat-E-Az Leest
Badeen-E-Suawa Haraam Ast Kar-E-Shahbazi
Nature—the great lawgiver—decrees:
the ways of falcon are forbidden in the religion of sparrows.
Haman Faqeeh-E-Azal Guft Jurrah Shaheen Ra
Basman Garwi Baz Mein Na Pardazi
The same heavenly law-giver decreed for the male falcon:
fly about the skies, don’t deal with the earth.
Manam Ke Tauba Na Kardam Zfaash Goi Haa
Zbeem-E-Ayn Ke Basultan Kunand Ghammazi
I have not left speaking the naked truth,
though the people may speak ill of me before the kings.
Badast-E-Ma Na Samarqand Wa Ne Bukhara Aeest
Dua Bagoz Faqeeran Ba Turk-E-Sheerazi
We have neither Samarkand nor Bukhara to offer,
the dervish can only pray for the Shirazi Turk
