Hawa mein aahistagi* milane lage hain
Haath se shama* bhujane lage hain
(aahistagi: slowness, shama: flame)

Chal basa tha dariya mein doob kar
Ye kis ka janaza uthane lage hain

Bhoola chuke hain jangal ki aag ko
Parinde aashiyan banane lage hain

Tahzeeb* ho gai mohabbat ki dushman
Nazron se khud ko girane lage hain
(tahzeeb:  manners)

Aisa kya jaadu libaas-e-dard* mein hai
Pahan kar jis ko muskurane lage hain
(tahzeeb:  dress made of pain)
