Download Screensaver of Faiz Ahmed Faiz epic poem ‘Tanhai’
Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s epic poem Tanhai has inspired many artists such as Sadequain. It remains one of Faiz Ahmed Faiz most melancholic poems, since most poetry of Faiz sahib is belong to verse of romance and optimism instead.
Again someone has knocked at door,O’ my sad heart!
No-one, nobody, must be a traveller, will leave anyways for somewhere else.
The Night has descended, the cluster of stars has started to scatter
In the halls, lamps getting sleepy and wavering now.
Every road after a long wait has gone to sleep;
Dust of strange lands has disappeared the traces of footsteps.
Extinguish the candles, extend the wine and flagon and winecup,
Put a lock to your sleepless portals. Nobody, no one will knock at them now.
Faiz Ahmed Faiz.
