In Nizamuddin, a place of great fame,
Where poets gather to recite and claim,
Next to the tomb of the revered saint,
Their poetry with passion they paint.

Each Thursday evening they come to the dargah,
To share their verse, without any embargo,
As the qawwalis fill the air with sound,
The poets' voices too, can be found.

They take turns to speak their minds,
In the company of all kinds,
And as each poet finishes their part,
The others show their love from the heart.

They listen patiently, then give some money,
Which the poet counts and rates it funny,
But in this place of spiritual light,
It's the beauty of words that's held most tight.
