Come into the sunshine and bathe in the howling wind
What is life, learn that by going beyond books


That is a star, let it twinkle in your eyes
Why shape it on your body to comprehend it


Stones can speak and feel emotions
learn that by refurbishing your doors and walls


Distance can be a folly of vision
whether she meets or not, do endeavor to meet her



Come into the sunshine and bathe in the howling wind
What is life, learn that by going beyond books


This is a Ghazal and the singer is Jagjit Singh

The ghazal (Arabic/Persian/Urdu: ???; Hindi: ?????; Punjabi: ?????, ???; Turkish: gazel) is a poetic form consisting of rhyming couplets and a refrain. Each line must share the same meter. A ghazal may be understood as a poetic expression of both the pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain.
