Simple were the people; simple were their homes

Simple were the people; simple were their homes

large were the courtyards and fewer were rooms

The people moaned and sighed to see that house

with a wall built in courtyard to divide the house

How to resolve the bygone and existing plight

were mutually shared in village pergola site

Boys walked miles and miles to their schools

Now the nearby ones, were then far-off schools

If anyone of them got tired carrying his satchel

A friend always shared the load of his satchel

Promises were made solemnly to carry out

Whatever promised was loyally carried ou

To the beloved a letter he sent

A heart through which an arrow went

Yet, in coyness she would herself absent

Not that she didn’t know what he had meant

See how beauty abase from rich to poor in love

when lover asked of his history; he was the one above

***

سیدھے سادھے لوگ تھے پہلے، گھر بھی سادہ ہوتا تھا
کمرے کم ہوتے تھے اور ، دالان کشادہ ہوتا تھا

دیکھ کے وہ گھر گاؤں والے سوگ منایا کرتے تھے
صحن میں جو دیوار اٹھا کر آدھا آدھا ہوتا تھا

مستقبل اور حال کے آزاروں کے ساتھ نمٹنے کو
چوپالوں میں ماضی کی یادوں کا اعادہ ہوتا تھا

دکھ چاہے جس کا بھی ہو وہ ملک کر بانٹا جاتا تھا
غم تو آج کے جیسے تھے احساس زیادہ ہوتا تھا

لڑکے بالے میلوں پیدل پڑھنے جایا کرتے تھے
پاس ہے جو اسکول وہ پہلے دور افتادہ ہوتا تھا

تھک جاتا کوئی تو مل کر بوجھ کو بانٹا کرتے تھے
دوست نے دوست کا بستہ اپنے سر پر لادا ہوتا تھا

سوچ سمجھ کر ہوتے تھے تب ساتھ نبھانے کے وعدے
لیکن جو کر لیتے تھے وہ وعدہ، وعدہ ہوتا تھا

خط میں دل اور تیر بنا کر منت کرنی پڑتی تھی
یار بہت مشکل سے ملنے پر آمادہ ہوتا تھا

دیکھ حسن کس منصب سے لے آیا عشق فقیری تک
جس سے پوچھا اپنے دور میں وہ شہزادہ ہوتا تھا

احتشام حسن
