Open Secrets / Allama Iqbal English Poetry

a nation whose youth are endowed
with self as strong and hard as steel :
no need of piercing swords in war
such people brave can ever feel.

the world of Pleaders and the Moon
by natural laws  is chained and bound :
whereas the world in which you dwell
Owns insight, will and mind much sound.

what do the quivering waves imply,
save enormous zeal and zest for quest ?
what lies  concealed in mother shell
is a gift of God who knows it best.

The hawk is never tired of flight,
does not drop gasping on the ground :
If unwearied it remains one wings,
from hunters' dread is  safe and sound.

Zarb e Kaleem(The mod of roses)
