دامِ ہر موج میں ہے حلقۂ صد کامِ نہنگ
دیکھیں کیا گزرے ہے قطرے پہ گہر ہوتے تک

दाम-ए हर मौज में है हलक़ह-ए सद काम-ए निहनग
देखें कया गुज़रे है क़तरे पह गुहर होते तक

daam-e har mauj meN hai halqah-e sad kaam-e nihang
dekheN kyaa guzre hai qatre pah guhar hote tak

in the net/snare of every wave is a circle of a hundred crocodile-mouths
let’s see what happens to the drop, until [its] becoming a pearl
