Addressed To the Students of Aligarh College
|The message of others is different, my message is different|
The style of address of the one afflicted with Love is different
|You have heard the laments of the bird under the net|
Also listen to the laments of the bird on the roof tops which are different
|Call was coming from the mount, “Life’s secret is peace”|
The frail ant was saying “The pleasure of struggle is different”
|The glory of Hijaz’ assemblage is based on Haram’s Love|
The station of this is different, the system of that is different!
|Eternal luxury is death if there is no Longing for Search|
Man’s revolving is different, wine‑cup’s revolving is different
|The dawn’s candle left the message that burning is life’s secret|
In the life’s sorrowful abode the condition for eternity is different
|The wine is still half-mature, Love is unsuccessful still|
Leave the church’s brick on the pitcher’s mouth still.
