    Gabriel Iqbal

    Iqbal is not a poet of the east as people call him, he is a planetary poet who expressed human freedom for all.

    "...one of Persia's most influential poets" - whilst a large part of his writings are in Farsi (Persian) he was not Persian but actually from the Indian subcontinent. This anthology is limited in what it includes of his works but is the best English translation I have come across.

    The Poet You charm travellers' hearts with pointed talk, Except that, in the pleasure it gives, One cannot compare it with the sharp thorn. What can I do, for by nature I am not someone Who can live for long in one place! My heart is restless, Like the west wind in a field of tulips. The moment my eyes light upon a pretty face, My heart begins to long for one prettier still. In the spark I seek a star, in the star a sun: I have no wish for a destination For if I stop I die. When I get up, having drunk A cup o The Poet You charm travellers' hearts with pointed talk, Except that, in the pleasure it gives, One cannot compare it with the sharp thorn. What can I do, for by nature I am not someone Who can live for long in one place! My heart is restless, Like the west wind in a field of tulips. The moment my eyes light upon a pretty face, My heart begins to long for one prettier still. In the spark I seek a star, in the star a sun: I have no wish for a destination For if I stop I die. When I get up, having drunk A cup of wine matured by one spring, I begin to sing another verse, And long for yet another spring, I seek the end of what has no end- With a restless eye, and hope in my heart. The lover's heart dies in an eternal heaven- In it no afflicted soul cries, There is no sorrow, and no one to drive sorrow away.- Iqbal

    Great introduction to Iqbal's poetry. The translation is okay but not the best. Reading a poetry book is not like reading other kinds of books. You read a poem a few times and if it's a good poem you come back to it over and over throughout your life. A good book of poetry is like visiting a friend. Great introduction to Iqbal's poetry.

    One of those writings that touches your soul (if you have one or believe in one) and makes your gut float.
