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 Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
