Kaun Tum Mere Hriday Mein
       kaun tum mere hRday men?

kaun meree kasak men nit
       madhurataa bharataa alakShit?
kaun pyaase lochanon men
       ghumaḌ ghir jharataa aparichit?
       svarN svapnon kaa chiteraa
              neend ke soone nilay men!
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

anusaraN nishvaas mere
       kar rahe kisakaa nirantar?
choomane padachinh kisake
       lauTate yah shvaas phir phir?
       kaun bandee kar mujhe ab
              ba(n)dh gayaa apanee vijay me?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

ek karuN abhaav chir -
       tRpti kaa sansaar sanchit,
ek laghu kShaN de rahaa
       nirvaaN ke varadaan shat-shat;
       paa liyaa mainne kise is
              vedanaa ke madhur kray men?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

goonjataa ur men n jaane
       door ke sangeet-saa kyaa!
aaj kho nij ko mujhe
       khoyaa milaa vipareet-saa kyaa!
       kyaa nahaa aaee virah-nishi
              milan-madhadin ke uday men?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

timir-paaraavaar men
       aalok-pratimaa hai akampit;
aaj jvaalaa se barasataa
       kyon madhur ghanasaar surabhit?
       sun rahee hoo(n) ek hee
              jhankaar jeevan men, pralay men?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

mook sukh-dukh kar rahe
       meraa nayaa shrRngaar-saa kyaa?
jhoom garvit svarg detaa -
       nat dharaa ko pyaar-saa kyaa?
       aaj pulakit sRShTi kyaa
              karane chalee abhisaar lay men?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

'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.
