Calcutta nr. 222
As soon as Ramazan comes this year
To the foot of wisdom the time of chains comes
O for Gods sake make the peoplee forgetful
that they may think Shawwal has come.
Ramazan, when, as now, in the season of summer it come is,
As a shackle full sore on the fetlock of sense and wit come is;
Lord, make thou the folk to be heedless, so they may imagine
The night of Shewwál, with its joy-bringing crescent lit, come is!
