Sher on Sayyad

There are certain institutionalised

concepts in poetry, especially the poetry in Persian and Urdu. Hunter, hunted, nest, and garden are some of these that constitute a cluster. A hunter is a traditional metaphor but it has had its significance all through and the modern poets have used it to convey for political messages. Here is a selection of verses around the central idea of the hunter who looks for a prey in the garden.

kuchh is andāz se sayyād ne āzād kiyā

jo chale chhuT ke qafas se vo giraftār chale

kuchh is andaz se sayyaad ne aazad kiya

jo chale chhuT ke qafas se wo giraftar chale

Mubarak Azimabadi

sayyād terā ghar mujhe jannat sahī magar

jannat se bhī sivā mujhe rāhat chaman meñ thī

sayyaad tera ghar mujhe jannat sahi magar

jannat se bhi siwa mujhe rahat chaman mein thi

Riyaz Khairabadi

aaj kuchh mehrbān hai sayyād

kyā nasheman bhī ho gayā barbād

aaj kuchh mehrban hai sayyaad

kya nasheman bhi ho gaya barbaad

Asar Lakhnavi

tujh ko ai sayyād kāvish agar manzūr hai

chaman meñ chhoḌ de mujh ko mire par toḌ kar

tujh ko ai sayyaad kawish hi agar manzur hai

tu chaman mein chhoD de mujh ko mere par toD kar

Mushafi Ghulam Hamdani

chaman meñ ḳhushk-sālī par hai ḳhush sayyād ki ab ḳhud

parinde peT ḳhātir asīr-e-dām hote haiñ

chaman mein KHushk-sali par hai KHush sayyaad ki ab KHud

parinde peT ki KHatir asir-e-dam hote hain
