Shaam: Do Manah Stithiyaan
ek:

        shaam hai, main udaas hoo(n) shaayad
        ajanabee log abhee kuchh aayen
        dekhie anachhue hue sampuT
        kaun motee sahejakar laayen
        kaun jaane ki lauTatee belaa
        kaun-se taar kahaa(n) chhoo jaayen!

                    baat kuchh aur chheḌie tab tak
                    ho davaa taaki bekalee kee bhee,
                    dvaar kuchh band, kuchh khulaa rakhie
                    taaki aahaT mile galee kee bhee -

        dekhie aaj kaun aataa hai -
        kaun-see baat nayee kah jaaye,
        yaa ki baahar se lauT jaataa hai
        deharee par nishaan rah jaaye,
        dekhie ye lahar Duboye, yaa
        sirf taTarekh chhoo ke bah jaaye,

                    kool par kuchh pravaal chhooT jaayen
                    yaa lahar sirf phenaavalee ho
                    adhakhile phool-see vinat anjulee
                    kaun jaane ki sirf khaalee ho?

do:

        vक़t ab beet gayaa baadal bhee
        kyaa udaas rang le aaye,
        dekhie kuchh huee hai aahaT-see
        kaun hai? tum? chalo bhale aaye!
        ajanabee lauT chuke dvaare se
        dard phir lauTakar chale aaye

                    kyaa ajab hai pukaarie jitanaa
                    ajanabee kaun bhalaa aataa hai
                    ek hai dard vahee apanaa hai
                    lauT har baar chalaa aataa hai

        anakhile geet sab usee ke hain
        anakahee baat bhee usee kee hai
        anauge din sab usee ke hain
        anahuee raat bhee usee kee hai
        jeet pahale-pahal milee thee jo
        aakhiree maat bhee usee kee hai

                    ek-saa svaad chhoḌ jaatee hai
                    zindagee tRpt bhee v pyaasee bhee
                    log aaye gaye baraabar hain
                    shaam gaharaa gayee, udaasee bhee!
