Ye alag baat hai saaqi ke mujhe hosh nahin
varna main kuch bhi huun ehsan-faramosh nahin


main teri mast nigahi ka bharam rakh lunga

hosh aya bhi to kah dunga mujhe hosh nahin”


Hungama hai kyon barpa, thodi si jo pi li hai

daaka to nahin daala chori to nahin ki hai


us may se nahin matalab dil jisase ho begaana


 


makasuud hai us may se dil hi mein jo khinchati hai


suuraj mein lage dhabba fitarat ke karishme hain

but hamako kahein kafir allah ki marzi hai


naatajurbaakaari se vayiz ki ye baatein hain

is rang ko kya jaane puuchho jo kabhi pi hai


waan dil mein ki sadamein do, yaan ji mein ki sab sah lo

unaka bhi ajab dil hai, mera bhi ajab ji hai


har zarra chamakata hai anawaar-e-ilaahi se

har saans ye kahati hai ham hain to kuda bhi hai


e shauq wahi may pi ai hosh zara so ja

mehamaan-e-nazar is dam ik bark-e-tazali hai

AKBAR ALLAHABADI.
