Pathos Of Love

Pathos Of Love

O Pathos of Love! You are a glossy pearl
Beware, you should not appear among strangers
The theatre of your display is concealed under the veil
The modern audience’ eye accepts only the visible display
New breeze has arrived in the Existence’ garden
O Pathos of Love! Now there is no pleasure in display
Beware! You should not be striving for ostentation!
You should not be obligated to the nightingale’s lament!
The tulip’s wine‐cup should be devoid of wine
The dew’s tear should be a mere dropp of water
Your secret should be hidden in the bosom somewhere
Your heart‐melting tear should not be your betrayer
The flowery‐styled poet’s tongue should not be talking
Separation’s complaint should not be concealed in flute’s music
This age is a critic, go and somewhere conceal yourself
In the heart in which you are residing conceal yourself
The learning’s surprise is neglecting you, beware!
Your immature eye is not the seeker of Truth, beware
Let the elegant thought remain in search of Truth
Let your wisdom‐loving eye remain in astonishment
This is not the garden whose spring you may be
This is not the audience worthy of your appearance
This audience is the lover of the material sights
The purpose of your sight is the closet of secrecy
Every heart is intoxicated with the wine of thinking
Something different is the Tur of the Kalims of this age

Allama Muhammad Iqbal
