‘Aate Hain Ghaib Se Ye’ by Mirza Ghalib

.

Ghalib, from what unseen source spring these verses of thine?
These jottings of the pen that art redolent of the divine.

.

.

Aate hain ghaib se yeh mazameen khayaal mein,
Ghalib sareer-e-khama nawa-e-sarosh hai.

.

About Ghalib there isn’t much I want to say, except that he is to Urdu what Shakespeare is to English.
