Lilac Eclipse: A Ghazal

Lovers cross the threshold this night
Whilst moon beams lilac shine this night

Hearkening to waters sparkle
From near roots of the vine this night

Lilac strands form rings to adorn
Fingers that intertwine this night

In the glowing chamber below
Hidden beloveds dine this night

Tarry with patience yet, says Creekrose
Treasure is in the wine this night

<br />Translated to Urdu by Shahre

Guzreh hai chaukhat say aashiq, aaj kee raat

Jab chamkey hai chandni mein yaas, aaj kee raat

Jhilmilati aab say kaan lagaye

Hai angoori bail kee jarain, aaj kee raat

Yaas kee lariyan, anghootiyan banaye

Bal khati ongliyon ko, sanwarey hai, aaj kee raat

Chamaktey damaktey Kamron taley

hein mehve ta aam , Pinhan aashiq, aaj kee raat

bass kuch dair aur Sabr, kahey hai Shahre

Sharab e pur ganj hai, yeh sharaab, aaj kee raat

      ey delbare man, elahy sad sale shavi
      dar pahloye ma neshaste, hamsaye shavi
      hamsaye shavi, ke dast be ma saye koni
      shayad ke nasibe mane bichare shavi*
