The Rose with its redolent petalsby Mirza Ghalib
English version by Riaz Ahmad
Original Language Urdu
The Rose with its redolent petals
The Water lily with its robe of virgin white
These have surely come to us in transmigration
Of but a few of those
Endowed with sublime beauty and grace.
Some embrace death to sprout again
But most, forever, in dust remain.
