a(n)dheree raat men deepak jalaae kaun baiThaa hai?

                uThee aisee ghaTaa nabh men
                chhipe sab chaand au' taare,
                uThaa toophaan vah nabh men
                gae bujh deep bhee saare,
magar is raat men bhee lau lagaae kaun baiThaa hai?
a(n)dheree raat men deepak jalaae kaun baiThaa hai?

                gagan men garv se uThauTh,
                gagan men garv se ghiraghir,
                garaj kahatee ghaTaae(n) hain,
                naheen hogaa ujaalaa phir,
magar chir jyoti men niShThaa jamaae kaun baiThaa hai?
a(n)dheree raat men deepak jalaae kaun baiThaa hai?

                timir ke raaj kaa aisaa
                kaThin aatank chhaayaa hai,
                uThaa jo sheesh sakate the
                unhonen sir jhukaayaa hai,
magar vidroh kee jvaalaa jalaae kaun baiThaa hai?
a(n)dheree raat men deepak jalaae kaun baiThaa hai?

                pralay kaa sab samaa(n) baandhe
                pralay kee raat hai chhaaee,
                vinaashak shaktiyon kee is
                timir ke beech ban aaee,
magar nirmaaN men aashaa dRḌhaae kaun baiThaa hai?
a(n)dheree raat men deepak jalaae kaun baiThaa hai?

                prabhanjan, megh daaminee ne
                n kyaa toḌaa, n kyaa phoḌaa,
                dharaa ke aur nabh ke beech
                kuchh saabit naheen chhoḌaa,
magar vishvaas ko apane bachaae kaun baiThaa hai?
a(n)dheree raat men deepak jalaae kaun baiThaa hai?

                pralay kee raat men soche
                praNay kee baat kyaa koee,
                magar paḌ prem bandhan men
                samajh kisane naheen khoee,
kisee ke path men palaken bichhaae kaun baiThaa hai?
a(n)dheree raat men deepak jalaae kaun baiThaa hai?

राष्ट्र वसन्त
रामदयाल पाण्डेय

पिकी पुकारती रही, पुकारते धरा-गगन;
मगर कहीं रुके नहीं वसन्त के चपल चरण।

असंख्य काँपते नयन लिये विपिन हुआ विकल;
असंख्य बाहु हैं विकल, कि प्राण हैं रहे मचल;
असंख्य कंठ खोलकर 'कुहू कुहू' पुकारती;
वियोगिनी वसन्त की...
