"Leaves from the Vine" is a song that Uncle Iroh sings in memory of his son Lu Ten from the Asian-inspired series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Because the "translation" on the wikia looks like it'd been run through google translate 10 years ago, and therefore I am 99.99% sure it is not official, I went ahead and wrote my own Chinese translation that could be sung to the same tune.

Have some more Faiz!

I found a video of Faiz reading out one of his poems... only 'reading out' doesn't seem enough to describe a mushairah, with this intimate atmosphere, a responsive audience. It's too beautiful not to share.

I got the above translation in an email, and have not been able to track down who it's by. If anyone knows of a different/better version, please do share!
