Chhand Prasang Nahin Hain
ham jeevan ke mahaakaavy hain
keval chhand prasang naheen hain.
         kankaḌ-patthar kee dharatee hai
         apane to paa(n)von ke neeche
         ham kab kahate bandhu! bichhaao
         svaagat men makhamalee galeeche
retee par jo chitr banaatee
aisee rang-tarang naheen hai.
         tumako raas naheen aa paayee
         kyon ajaatashatrutaa hamaaree
         chhip-chhipakar jo karate rahate
         sheetayuddh kee tum taiyaaree
ham bhaaḌe ke sainik lekar
laḌate koee jang naheen hain.
         kahate-kahate hamen maseehaa
         tum laTakaa dete saleeb par
         hansen tumhaaree kooTaneeti par
         kuḌhen yaa ki apane naseeb par
bheetar-bheetar se jo pole
ham ve Dhol-mRdang naheen hai.
         tum saamuhik bahiShkaar kee
         mitr! bhale yojanaa banaao
         jahaa(n)-jahaa(n) par likhaa huaa hai
         naam hamaaraa, use miTaao
jisakee Dor haath tumhaare
ham vah kaTee patang naheen hai.

'Geet Koyee Kasamasaataa'
Anita Nihalani


neel nabh ke paar koee
mand svar men gunagunaataa,
rooh kee gaharaaiyon men
geet koee kasamasaataa!

nirjharon saa kab bahegaa
sang Khushaboo ke uḌegaa,
jangalon kaa maun neerav
baarishon kee dhun bharegaa!

'Suprabhaat'
Prabhakar Shukla


nayan kaa nayan se, naman ho rahaa hai
lo uShaa kaa aagaman ho rahaa hai
parat par parat, chaandanee kaT rahee hai
tabhee to nishaa kaa, gaman ho rahaa hai
kShitij par abhee bhee hain, alasaaye sapane
palak khol kar bhee, shayan ho rahaa hai
jharokhon se praachee kee pahalee kiraN kaa
lahar se pratham aachaman ho rahaa hai
hain nahalaa raheen, har kalee ko tuShaaren
lagan poorv kitanaa jatan ho rahaa hai
vahee shaakh par pakShiyon kaa hai kalarav
prabhaateesaa lekin, sahan ho rahaa hai
baḌhee jaa rahee jis tarah se aruNimaa
hai lagataa kaheen par havan ho rahaa hai
madhur mukt aabhaa, sugandhit pavan hai
naye din kaa kaisaa sRjan ho rahaa hai.
