Last Night......

Last night, your long-lost memory came back to me as though
Spring stealthily should come to a forsaken wilderness
A gentle breeze its fragrance over burning deserts blow
Or, all at once be soothed somehow the sick soul’s distress.

Lovely short touching poem.
This is an extraordinarily fine translation. The imagery is wonderful, the message heartfelt. I have never read the works of Faiz Ahmed Faiz in his original language, but am very glad to have this opportunity of seeing a translation!
