Ghazal 16

ye jo hai hukm mere pas na aye koi
is liye ruth rahe hain k manaye koi


tak main hai nigah-e-shauq khuda khair kare
samane se mere bachta hua jaye koi


hal aflaq-o-zamin ka jo bataya bhi to kya
bat vo hai jo tere dil ki bataye koi


apne 'Dag' ko munh bhi na lagaya afsos
us ko rakhta tha kaleje se lagaye koi


ho chuka aish ka jalsa to mujhe khat bheja
ap ki tarah se mehaman bulaye koi

VENUS is the second brightest object in the night sky after the Moon and can be seen even in daylight. When Venus is west of the Sun, it rises before the Sun in the morning (this explains why it is known as the 'Morning Star') .. And when it is east of the Sun, Venus is easily seen in the evening, just after sunset (hence, the 'Evening Star') .
Planet Venus.. the so called ''Evening Star'' (but also the ''Morning Star'') .. has always been shining in poets' imagination.. and this pretty Longfellow's poem gives us a pleasant little time to share..
this poem is very beautiful
