A cool fall night--
getting dinner, we peeled
eggplants, cucumbers.

Kabhi aajao tum pal bhar ko,
Mujhe tum se batien krni hain,

I went down yesterday
to fix a leak in my tire. Off Bridge street
there's a place 95 cents

Akhri teer hon kamaan ka mai
Gar khata hogaya to khair nahi

With my extern the outward honouring,
Or laid great bases fo

Kathan Safar Hai Muhabbaton K Serab Rasty Hain Soch Lena
Wo Chorr Jate Hen 1 Qadam Pr Jo 7 Chalte

Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludg

How can I then return in happy plight
That am debarred the benefit of rest?
When day's oppression

Nazar ke samne rehna nazar nahin aana,
Tere sivaa yeh kisi ko hunar nahin aana,
Yeh intezar magar

gae hue ke liye dil mein kuchh jagah rakhna

Qatra Qatra Milti Hai

Qatra Qatra Jeene Do

Zindagi Hai Behne Do

Pyaasa Hoon Me Pyaasa Rehne

Mujhe Yaad hai abhi tak
Jab barsti tap tap karti Rim jhim mein

Haan December ki is Thatrti
Sard

Mein tujhe kho ke bhi zinda hoon, Yeh dekha tu ne,
Kiss qadar hauslaa haarey huye insaan mein hai..

Out on the high "bird islands," Ciboux and Hertford,
the razorbill auks and the silly-looking puff

(from a song)

Perhaps I was born kneeling,
born coughing on the long winter,
born expecting

Soda Gari Nahi Ye Ibadat Khuda Ki Hai

Ae Be-Khabar Jaza Ki Tamana Bhi Chor De
