An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



saatha tsu khor thahraav.........

Stay a while, beloved, or make your steps

Soft and slow, so that you can be seen.
O leave that frown ! Just a kind look from you
Would heal all wounds and fulfil all desires.
Remember, I bore your shafts and nursed my wounds
In silence ! Come now as the healing balm !
Since you have a wealth of beauty, do you too,
Like all men of wealth, have a thirst for human blood ?
The Dal has supernal beauty with the lotus in bloom;
I'll moor by boat at Zeethyar; appear to me at Gopakar !
I don't need a rosary and wooden sandals on my feet,
For I seek you with my love. O, reveal yourself !
Don't follow men of shallow faith - mere sparks ! - 
Offer your love to the lamp, if you seek enlightenment.
With jackals swarming into towns, tigers have sought
Sylvan retreat ! You too must leave this town now,
And surprise the meadow flowers.
Mahjoor is no savant; but at times He urge
Grips him to dabble in the mysteries of love !
