Kiss Me Poem by Mirza Ghalib


Ghooncha-e-nashiguftha ko dhoor se math dikha key yoon
Bosey ko poonchtha houn mein munh se muchey batha ki yoon


Translation:

Don't stay afar pouting your lips at me like a rosebud;
I asked you for a kiss--let your lips answer my plea.

    Very short, much like that insignificant kiss on the lips! (Report) Reply

    What a great translation of poetic lines! But the original one is really greater. Ghalib had always been ghalib on his contemporaries as well as successors.
    Great lines. (Report) Reply
