An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



volo ha baaghvaano.......

Come, gardener ! Create the glory of spring ! Make
Guls bloom and bulbuls sing - create such haunts !
The dew weeps, and your garden lies desolate;
Tearing their robes, your flowers are distracted.
Breathe life once again into the lifeless gul and the bulbul !
Rank nettles hamper the growth of your roses.
Weed them out, for look thousands
Of hyacinths are crowding at the gate !
Who will set you free, captive bird,
Crying in your cage ? Forge with your own hands
The instruments of your deliverance !
Wealth and pride and comfort, luxury and authority,
Kingship and governance - all these are yours !
Wake up, sleeper, and know these as yours I
Bid good-bye to your dulcet strains. To rouse
This habitat of flowers, create a storm,
Let thunder rumble, - let there be an earthquake !
