An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



laala miyon manz shaalamaaran ...

My beloved may be with his friends
In shalamar, showering his radiance

On lawns and waterfalls.


I'd pour out my heart but dare not,

For as he ever does, he may twist my words

As subtle hints to prove that I am false.


Superb artist ! I found him resting

At a spring of pearls -

Perhaps he was threading them for belles

As beautiful as pearls !


Love's clear call rings in the woods,

Reverberates in hill and dale;

Perhaps it's the same call that makes

The streams and rivulets roar.


Vernal green fills the world;

All flowers are in bloom,

May be, Spring has also made

The flower in my garden bloom.


Lulling me to sleep, he left,

Perhaps to roam in the hills,

Maybe he is, like the moon,

Studding the stars with gems.


I roamed in many a market,

And asked all the merchants

If love was on display there

An an article for sale.


Great anxiety fills the hearts

Of yemberzal and hyacinth

That the lover of flowers may be now

In dalliance with roses !


Mahjoor's heart is always full

Of the lofty flights of love.

And maybe it's the fire of love

That has burnt his house and home!
