    Not to the prophets who couldn’t save their life
    Nor to the Judas who drank thy blood and defied
    But I sing to their corpses who only could hear
    The sound of my music which nobody could bear

    Not to the god who never stepped on ground
    Nor to the devils who devour day and night
    But I pray to the man; dear soul of the man
    Who was born in the winter and killed in the autumn

    Not to those rich who have flesh of gold and silver
    Nor to their concubines who stay naked and shiver
    But I cry in vagueness for my own black shadow
    It ran into light and jumped out of a window

    Not to the musician who bombed the opera
    Nor to the painter who darkened the skies
    But I smile for the poet, who drowned in the river
    Yet comes to life in each of his ode, couplet and elegy read more »

    Mr. Aziz Ahmad has written an Elegy on the Poet Haji Ali Sikander, commonly known as Jigar Moradabadi. The poem is in 48 stanzas of Eight lines each followed by 48 paragraphs of notes, one for each stanza. They explain the real mood of the stanzas. This is perhaps the first time that an Elegy in English on an Urdu Poet has been attempted. Elegiac poems in Urdu are common. The marsais of Anis and Dabir are long elegiac poems of unsurpassed beauty. An Elegy is literally a song or poem of mourning. The English examples are Lycidas, Adonais and Thyrsis. They are true elegies although Gray's well-known Elegy, which was written in a country churchyard does not mourn anyone in particular and deals with 'the pathos of mortality'. read more »

    A Poet's Echo
