Ibteda


      haiN aur bhee duniya meiN suKHanwar bohot achche
      kehte haiN ki 'GHalib' ka hai andaaz-e-bayaaN aur 


      Balli maarhah ke mahalle ki wo pechida daleeloN ki see wo galiYan
      saamne Taal ke nuKkad pe baTeroN ke posheede
      guD-guDaati hui paaN pi peekoN meiN wo daad wo waH-waH
      chand darwaaze par laTke huye boshida se kuch TaaT ke parde
      ek baKri ke mamiyaane ki awaaZ
      aur dhoondhlaayi huyi shaam ke be-noor andhere
      aise deewaroN se mooH joD kar chalte haiN yahaN
      chuDi-waala unke katri ke badi bee jaise
      apNi boojHti hui aaNkhoN se darwaaze TaTole
      aisee be-noor andheri see gali qaasim se
      ek quran-e-sukhan ka safa khulta hai
      asad allah Khan 'GHalib' ka patha milta hai.
