Beautiful Couplet

Usi makaam par mujhe dekhke tanha,
Bahut Mayoos Hue Phool Bechne wale…


Spotted I was, at that spot, alone
Disappointing the way-side flower sellers
— Jamal Ehsani

It looses a lot in translation – but I thought that the hindi verse was beautiful; extremely romantic colored with a tinge of sorrow. Saw this on Koffee with Karan; Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi’s episode.
