Pabandiyan
honTh par paabandiyaa(n) hain
gunagunaane kee.
               nirjanon men jab papeehaa
               pee bulaataa hai.
               tab tumhaaraa svar achaanak
               ubhar aataa hai.
adhar par paabandiyaa(n) hain
geet gaane kee.
               chaa(n)danee kaa parvaton par
               khelanaa rukanaa
               sheesh saagar men jhukaa kar
               roop ko lakhanaa.
darpaNon ko manaahee
chhabiyaa(n) sajaane kee.
               os men bheegee nahaaee
               doob see palaken,
               shrRng se shyaamal machalatee
               dhaar see alaken.
shilp par paabandiyaa(n)
aakaar paane kee.
               ketakee sa(n)g pavan ke
               Thahare hue ve kShaN,
               dekhate aakaash ko
               bhujapaash men, lochan.
bijaliyon ko hai manaahee
muskuraane kee.
               havan karataa mantr saa
               paḌhataa badan chandan,
               yagy kee uThatee shikhaa saa
               dagdh paavan man.
praaN par paabandiyaa(n)
samidhaa chaDhaane kee.

phoolon hee jaisee sugandh shareer kee
samayon ke antaraal cheeratee hooee
adheerataa ichchhaa kee

aur aatee-jaatee laḌakiyaa(n)
