Solitude(tenhai) By Allama Iqbal In English

Much greed for show and fame
Has put this age to shame :
The glance is bright and clear,
Heart's mirror, but is blear.

When zeal and zest for sight
 exceed their greatest height,
Thoughts soar to highest point
And soon are out of joint.

That vernal drop of rain
The state of Pearl can't gain 
If destined not to dwell,
In lap of mother shell.

Retreat is blessed state
'Bout self gives Knowledge great :
Alas! this found in fane or shrine.

"Zarb e Kaleem (The rod of moses)"
