Come change the the laws that have governed the turning of the skies
Seize heavy fate like a goblet, and pass it round as we please

Store up the hoard of gain that the heart and eye can amass
Play host to soul and to body; drive out their fear of loss

The world goes by; let us leave it. Come in, and shut the door
And post a guard in the lane so that none may come any more

The governor send to reprove us? Let us not feel any fear
The king sends gifts? We shall tell him, 'They are not wanted here'

Let's speak with none--not even if kalim himself should come
Make none our guest--not if even Khalil himself would be one

Let's scatter roses and sprinkle rose-water on the ground
Bring wine to pour in abundance and let the cup go round

No guest, no minstrel, no saki--let's tell them all to be gone
Lets there be only a handmaid who knows what is to be done

Now pleasing you with the sweetness of conversation's grace
Now savoring with our tongues all the passion of our kiss

Put shame aside; let us grapple in such a bold embrace
The stars above in the heavens will try to hide their face

Our hearts afire, we will hold up the coming of the dawn
And banish out of existence hot day before it is born

Create in all the illusion night has not yielded to day
Turn back the sheep and the shepherd before they're on their way

With words of war we will challenge the flower-gatherers' bands
'You come to plunder the garden? Go back with empty hands!'

With words of peace as the dawn comes we'll lull the wakening birds
Luring them back to their nest with sweetness of our words

Is Ghalib, then, destined never to look at your eyes?
Come, change the laws that have governed the turning of the skies

--Ralph Russell (Translation of Ghalib)
