Entreaty

na may sta da nari shudi dy pakar ..........................................................I do not need your red sculpted lips,

na da zulfi wal pa wal laka khamar..........................................................Nor hair in loops like a serpent's coils

na da bati pashan danga ghari ghwaram ..................................................Nor a nape as graceful as a swan's,

nargasay stargy na daki da khumar ......................................................Nor narcissus eyes full of drunkenness,

na ghakhuna dy laluna da adan.............................................................Nor teeth as perfect as pearls of heaven,

na nangy dak sara sara laka anar.......................................................Nor cheeks ruddy and full as pomegranates,

na pasti da sarindy pa shan khabari..........................................Nor a voice mellifluous as a sarinda(a musical instrument),

na wajood laka da saar way mazadar.........................................................Nor a figure as elegant as a poplar,

khu bas yow shai rata ra ukhaya dilbara...............................................But show me just this one thing, my love,

da lala pashan zargy ghawaram daghdar..............................................I seek a heart stained like a poppy flower

yow dawa ukhaqi chi da ghum ao muhabat way......................................Pearls by millions I would gladly cede,

lakuno laluna dy karam zaar..............................................................For the sake of tears borne of love and grief.

Ahh ^ finally! A thread where I can share this pashto poem and get it off my chest. :)

Na ba tol umar dunya we

Na ba tol umar zwani

Bia ba gran swal ao jawab we

Zan ba teeng na kry Ghani!

Da jannat hoorey ba sa kram

Che yaraan ba sara na we

Be mastay sharab ba sa kram

Che mulla ba ey hum skii :D

Daa so rwazey zindagi da

Jaam rawachawa saaqi!

Daa waadaa karey Khuday

Che bakhi ba lewani........ ^^^^^^^^
