Adding my own sher to this Ghazal ( its not fitting the Bahar though) 

sargoshi hai bazm-e-ishq me, sabab tere -ikhtilaaf  ka
tere dahan kahe tuman tuman, tera nayan kahe haman haman
[sargoshi = whispers, bazm-e-ishq = gathering of love, ikhtilaaf = difference/disagreement/discord, dahan = mouth,  tuman = you (archaic), nayan = eyes, haman = me (archaic)]


Putting a rough translation to this Ghazal

from head to toe you are a tale and such strange is this congregation's situation
 that every tongue is talking  of these delicate eyes and every talk is about the arrogant silence

she is an aspect of complete beauty, she is total kiss and embrace,
she is the face to look at, she is the mouth to kiss on

 the  magicking by the eyes and versifying by the silence
your eyes are Samri's magic , your lips are tale of Nal and Damayanti


with perfection, the emotions of the heart on fire, alters the movement of the celestial
on morning its a face of garden and on evening its locks of  hair


that smile of the tender heart,  that spring on the face of the beauty
that half blossomed flower, that freshness of the garden


someone should have seen , with my eyes, the expanse of your party
every corner of which was an infinite space, every moment of which was eternity


for you the destination too is pathway and for me the roads are also the destination,
the difference is that its your way to travel and this is my way of walking.


the light from the warmth of those lips, the light from the smile,
that coquettish way of yours, that glance of yours like rubies.


sadden and extinguished; is Firaak's life worthy of living,
but then the sown field of today's poetry is only due to him .

'Firaaq' Gorakhpuri

Whispers, about the reason of our differences, are going around the gathering of love
and your mouth says its me but your eyes says its you
