Athaah
duःkh men, dukhon ke garbh men,
sukh ke anachhue sandarbh men,
aayu hai kyaa, kyaa aankalan,
n samay, n samay kaa hee smaraN |
thaah paa loon, yadi is athaah kee,
to is chanchal chiraayu chaah kee,
gati ko apanee gati mile,
chaahe bhaav mile yaa kShati mile |
is komal kalpanaa ko tolakar,
bhaav shabdon men bolakar,
chiranidraa mRtyu ki paa loon main
dukhon ko chhand de, gaa loon main,
yahee aas hai, yahee kaamanaa,
sheeghr ho athaah se saamanaa |

'Kuchh Naheen Hilaa Us din'
Bhawaniprasad Mishra


kuchh naheen hilaa us din
n pal n prahar n din n raat

sab nikShchal khaḌe rahe

aur aatee-jaatee laḌakiyaa(n)
jinhe main sisTar naheen kahanaa chaahataa thaa
