Cleopatra

sham ke daman mein pechan nim-afrangi hasin
nuqrai paron mein ek sone ki lag
rah guzar mein ya khiraman sard aag
ya kisi mutrib ki le ek tishna takmil rag
ek bahr-e-be-karan ki jhilmilati sath par
zau-fagan afsana-ha-e-rang-o-nur
nile nile do kanwal maujon se chur
bahte bahte jo nikal jaen kahin sahil se dur
chand si peshaniyon par zarfishan lahron ka jal
ahmarin udta hua rang-e-sharab
jam gai hain asha-e-sad-aftab
gardanon ke pech-o-kham mein ghul gaya hai mahtab
ishrat-e-parwez mein kya nala-e-ha-e-tez-tez
ud gaya din ki jawani ka khumar
sham ke chehre pe laut aaya nikhaar
ho chuke hain ho rahe hain aur daman dagh-dar
us ka zarrin takht simin jism hai aankhon se dur
jam-e-zahr-alud se uthte hain jhag
chaunk kar angdaiyan lete hain nag
jag 'antoni' mohabbat so rahi hai jag jag
