Translations and Embellishments



The soul is swaying to thoughts of you
- a candle flickering in the breeze;
A dance of ecstasy with mortal danger
- a sigh away from oblivion. --Ghalib

--

How lightly you wield such a glance,
the soul set alight by its brilliance,
its twinkle a lightning lance,
beyond even the aegis of Athena.
