Excerpt from Hindustani Lyrics: Rendered From the Urdu

The poetry is very varied and of great interest. It includes moral verses and counsels, sometimes in inter mingled verse and prose; heroic poems telling the Old tales of the loves Of Khusru and Shirin, of Yusuf and Zuleika, of Majnun and Leila, and the romances of chivalry; elegies on the deaths of Hasan and Hussein, and of various mon archs; devotional poems in praise of Muhammad and the Imams; eulogies of the reigning Ruler or other patron or protector of the poor; satires upon men and institutions, sometimes upon Nature herself, specially upon such phenomena as heat, cold, in'undations and pestilence; descriptive verse relating to the seasons and the months, the flowers and the trees. Above all there is a great wealth of love poetry, both secular and mystic, where, in impas sioned ghaza-ls or Odes, the union of man with God is celebrated Under various allegories, as the bee and the lotus, the nightingale and the rose, the moth and the flame.
