When will, world, Navoiy come to earth?

Lunar soil has fallen on my eyes,

My pupils‘ve brought ripe apricots – surprise,

My wound has burst and swollen a thousand times,

When will, world, Navoiy come to earth?

 

Lutfiy’s robe – unwanted on the wall,

People quarrel for Alexander’s sword.

Putting Khosrow’s jackboots above all

They break and slight the cradle of Farhod –

When will, world, Navoiy come to earth?

 

As moonlight – your hair – I would balm,

From your eyes, I’d get dew with aplomb,

Wish I were a new Navoiy’s mom –

When will, world, Navoiy come to earth?
