Priya Chirantan Hai Sajani
       priy chirantan hai sajani,
              kShaN kShaN naveen suhaaginee main!

shvaas men mujhako chhipaa kar vah aseem vishaal chir ghan,
shoony men jab chhaa gayaa usakee sajeelee saadh-saa ban,
       chhip kahaa(n) usamen sakee
              bujh-bujh jalee chal daaminee main!

chhaa(n)h ko usakee sajani nav aavaraN apanaa banaa kar,
dhooli men nij ashru bone main pahar soone bitaa kar,
       praat men ha(n)s chhip gaee
              le chhalakate dRg yaaminee main!

milan-mandir men uThaa doo(n) jo sumukh se sajal guNThan,
main miToo(n) priy men miTaa jyon tapt sikataa men salil-kaN,
       sajani madhur nijatv de
              kaise miloo(n) abhimaaninee main!

deep-see yug-yug jaloo(n) par vah subhag itanaa bataa de,
phoo(n)k se usakee bujhoo(n) tab kShaar hee meraa pataa de!
       vah rahe aaraadhy chinmay
              mRNmayee anuraaginee main!

sajal seemit putaliyaa(n) par chitr amiT aseem kaa vah,
chaah vah anant basatee praaN kintu saseem saa yah,
       raj-kaNon men khelatee kis
              viraj vidhu kee chaa(n)danee main?

'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.
