Shafi's Oasis

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For scholars, if poetry did not degrade,
finer than
Labid's I would have said

 

Were not for my fear of my Lord only,

I would see men as my slaves simply.

We blame our time though we are to blame.
No fault has time but only us.


We scold the time for all the shame.
Did it have tongue, it would scold us.
