Treasure Island

Ardhangni 2


Jab mujhse aankh milati ho tum mujhko rag dikhati ho,
Mukh pher ke phir muskati ho aur us karwat so jati ho.

Tum do do naukariyan karte ho kab jate ho kab aate ho,
Tum kitne durbal dikhte ho tum der se keyun ghar aate ho.

Bachon ko to parhana hay unka jeevan to banana hay,
Hum aaj agar ro len ge agar kal bachon ko muskana hay.

Tum doosri naukari chor do ab thore mei guzara kar loon gi,
Han tumse bara sukh koi nahin har dukh main gawara kar loon gi.

Yeh raina bari hi sunder hay poonam ka chand chamakta hay,
Yeh mujhse jo kutch kehta hay keya tumse wo sab kehta hay.

Jub mera chand ho dharti par main aakash ko keyun dekhoon,
Tum kanon mein ras gholte ho keya aur sunoon aur keyun sochoon.

Choro kal itwar hay ab kam ki batein ho jaen,
Kal to nahin itwar hay aaj ache bache so jaen.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
