Allama Iqbal: Two Planets Atwe Mon, 06/07/2021 - 14:52

I came across Allama Iqbal's poem Two Planets the other day and thought I might give it a try. I rearranged the rhyme structure a little bit in the first half out of necessity.
The original was written in Urdu, which I don't speak, so I worked from the English translation. I can only hope I have not turned the poem into a game of Chinese whispers.
