It has been ages since my Friend was my guest,
and with the fervid wine cup our company was aglow.
[Ghalib, from Urdu]

These caravans of memory would have been lost for ever
if I had snoozed, even by a moment’s fractional error.
[Shahryar, from Urdu]

Life calls on you whilist in strange thoughts you're lost!
O simple-hearted! What worries thou holdest within?
[Kamil, from Kashmiri]
