Gori Chali Piya Ke Des


Dil ne ki jab peyar ki bhool,
Chehra bana gulab ka phool,
Masti bhari nigahon mein,
Shokhi aa gai bahon mein.
Dekho badly badly chal,
Tan man dono hayn behal,
Chupke chupke sari sakhiyan,
Samjhati hayn peyar ki batiyan.
Chehre pe apne rakh kar hath,
Baithi sakhion ke hay sath,
Bhabhi ne kanon mein kaha,
Sharma ke gori ne suna.
Dulha bhai cherte hayn,
Jane keya keya bolte hayn.
Baji ki danten sunte hayn,
Phir bhi chup nahin hote hayn.
Kaisa aaya yeh baisakh,
Jhukne lagi gori ki aankh.
Fasleyn katin aur khuli lagan,
Chanki payal phir chan chan.
Aayen ge sajan leke barat,
Mehke hue hon ge din rat.
Gori ne orhi lal chunariya,
Aayen ge lene uske sanwariya.
Gori ne leli sunahri khes,
Dulhan ban ke chali pardes,
Keyun bojh bani peyari beti,
Kal tak to thi dulari beti.
Bahta kajra kahta hay,
Dil mein dar keyun rahta hay.
Keya jane bhag mein keya likha hay.
Beti ki shadi ek jua hay.
Bhaiya kal lene aana hay.
Kutch din to aana jana hay!

    A beautiful description of the marriage of a young girl with all fun and frolics ending with a heavy heart at the point of her departure with some confusions and fear in mind, very rightly described in few lines as....

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
