O SON OF THE DESERT
Chapter 8

When all the desert sides were bright from dawn,
From tree a bird tuned to a youth in lawn.
O desertís son! leave thy tent with haste,
You lead a dull life which lacks journey taste.

1.         In the above three quatrains (twin couplets) the poet has addressed an immaculate son of the desert, a young Muslim, free from the impure taints of city life.
In the next couplets he has addressed the upper strata, the intellectuals, the teachers and philosophers of the desert land.
