SONG OF KHAN ZADA
translated into English by: Laurence Hope (1865-1904)
- S one may sip a Stranger's Bowl
- You gave yourself but not your soul.
- I wonder, now that time has passed,
- Where you will come to rest at last.
- You gave your beauty for an hour,
- I held it gently as a flower.
- You wished to leave, told me so,
- I kissed your feet and let you go.
