Samay Ki Shilaa Par
samay kee shilaa par madhur chitr kitane
kisee ne banaaye, kisee ne miTaaye.

       kisee ne likhee aa(n)suon se kahaanee
       kisee ne paḌhaa kintu do boond paanee
       isee men gaye beet din zindagee ke
       gayee ghul javaanee, gayee miT nishaanee.
vikal sindhu ke saadh ke megh kitane
dharaa ne uThaaye, gagan ne giraaye.

       shalabh ne shikhaa ko sadaa dhyey maanaa,
       kisee ko lagaa yah maraN kaa bahaanaa,
       shalabh jal n paayaa, shalabh miT n paayaa
       timir men use par milaa kyaa Thikaanaa?
praNay-panth par praaN ke deep kitane
milan ne jalaaye, virah ne bujhaaye.

       bhaTakatee huee raah men vanchanaa kee
       rukee shraant ho jab lahar chetanaa kee
       timir-aavaraN jyoti kaa var banaa tab
       ki TooTee tabhee shrRnkhalaa saadhanaa kee.
nayan-praaN men roop ke svapn kitane
nishaa ne jagaaye, uShaa ne sulaaye.

       surabhi kee anil-pankh par maun bhaaShaa
       uḌee, vandanaa kee jagee supt aashaa
       tuhin-bindu banakar bikhar par gaye svar
       naheen bujh sakee archanaa kee pipaasaa.
kisee ke charaN par varaN-phool kitane
lataa ne chaḌhaaye, lahar ne bahaaye.

'Koyal Kaa Sitaar'
Ashok Chakradhar


ek baar vah uḌate uḌate,
uḌate hee uḌate mastee men,
jangal ke kuchh baahar aakar,
pahu(n)chee anajaanee bastee men.

bastee men Teele ke oopar,
sundar saa ik chhoTaa ghar thaa,
goo(n)j rahaa sangeet jahaa(n) par,
laharaataa sitaar kaa svar thaa.

jaise koee jaadoo kar de,
jaise chumbak lohaa kheenche,
us sitaar kee svaralaharee se,
khinchakar koyal aaee neeche.
