Chaand aur Kavi
raat yon kahane lagaa mujhase gagan kaa chaa(n)d,
aadamee bhee kyaa anokhaa jeev hai!
ulajhanen apanee banaakar aap hee pha(n)sataa,
aur phir bechain ho jagataa, n sotaa hai.

jaanataa hai too ki main kitanaa puraanaa hoo(n)?
main chukaa hoo(n) dekh manu ko janamate-marate
aur laakhon baar tujh-se paagalon ko bhee
chaa(n)danee men baiTh svapnon par sahee karate.

aadamee kaa svapn? hai vah bulabulaa jal kaa
aaj uThataa aur kal phir phooT jaataa hai
kintu, phir bhee dhany Thaharaa aadamee hee to?
bulabulon se khelataa, kavitaa banaataa hai.

main n bolaa kintu meree raaginee bolee,
dekh phir se chaa(n)d! mujhako jaanataa hai too?
svapn mere bulabule hain? hai yahee paanee?
aag ko bhee kyaa naheen pahachaanataa hai too?

main n vah jo svapn par keval sahee karate,
aag men usako galaa lohaa banaataa hoo(n),
aur us par neenv rakhataa hoo(n) naye ghar kee,
is tarah deevaar phaulaadee uThaataa hoo(n).

manu naheen, manu-putr hai yah saamane, jisakee
kalpanaa kee jeebh men bhee dhaar hotee hai,
vaaN hee hote vichaaron ke naheen keval,
svapn ke bhee haath men talavaar hotee hai.

svarg ke samraaT ko jaakar khabar kar de-
roj hee aakaash chaḌhate jaa rahe hain ve,
rokiye, jaise bane in svapnavaalon ko,
svarg kee hee or baḌhate aa rahe hain ve.

'Chhipaa Lenaa'
Ram Krishna "Kaushal"


jab veg pavan kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

kuchh kahate kahate ruk jaanaa
kuchh aankhon aankhon kah denaa
kuchh sun lenaa chupake chupake
kuchh chupake chupake sah lenaa

rahane dekar man kee man men
tum geet praNay ke gaa lenaa

jab veg man kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

nabh men neerav taare honge
man men hongee baaten manakee
kuchh sapane honge rang bhare
kuchh yaaden beete jeevan kee

jab chaand ghaTaa men muskaae
tum ur kee peer sulaa lenaa

jab veg pavan kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

kuchh sanyam se kuchh nishchay se
nij yauvan man chhalate jaanaa

soory, tumhen dekhate-dekhate
main vRddh ho gayaa.

log kahate hain,
mainne tumhaaree kiraNen pee hain,
tumhaaree aag ko
paas baiThakar taapaa hai.

aur afavaah yah bhee hai
