Harivansh Rai Bachchan

(27 November 1907 – 18 January 2003 / Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh / British India)

कहते हैं तारे गाते हैं


कहते हैं तारे गाते हैं!
सन्नाटा वसुधा पर छाया,
नभ में हमने कान लगाया,
फिर भी अगणित कंठों का यह राग नहीं हम सुन पाते हैं!
कहते हैं तारे गाते हैं!

स्वर्ग सुना करता यह गाना,
पृथिवी ने तो बस यह जाना,
अगणित ओस-कणों में तारों के नीरव आँसू आते हैं!
कहते हैं तारे गाते हैं!

ऊपर देव तले मानवगण,
नभ में दोनों गायन-रोदन,
राग सदा ऊपर को उठता, आँसू नीचे झर जाते हैं।
कहते हैं तारे गाते हैं!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
