Gopaldas Neeraj Poems
Hai Bahut Andiar Ab Suraj Nikalna Chahiy...
Door se Door Talak Ek Bhi Darakht Na Tha
Sapna Jhare Phul Se, Mit Chubhe Shul Se
Mind not free
Though our body has become independent still, our mind is not, we have -
O pedestrian ! Walk with care. This's Raj Path !
Darkness Will Decline
My country! Don't be dejected flame'll get ignited, Darkness'll decline.
Life's Swan Song
Now don't delay my departure My funeral is ready Destination is far- off And every direction is dark.
A Poet, I am Not
Friend: A poet, I am not. Those who are, Sing not, Care naught for the oppressed,
I Meditate ...
I meditate- If ever there's a third world war What'll happen to new morn's offspring ? I meditate- If Earth sprouts out blood What'll happen of the mirth of innocent ploughs ?
30th January - An Order
Today's Thirtieth January Write-if you must Ask not for ink Transfer tears on paper.
Ego-My Prison House
My lock-key has been lost And closet-ed Life has become Uncomfortable herein I am not,
Where To Civilization?
Whore to this world ? What speed-Science ? Which Way-History ? What turmoil-Time ?
Time to Raise Tempests !
Time to raise tempests ! Time to raise tempests ; Tears being toxed, pain being public-saled Every fragrant-Flower is a revolutionary.
