Pyari Chidiya (Hindi)


Nanhi si woh chidiya thi
Barsaat mein bheeg rahi thi,
Udkar ped par baithi woh
Pani se bachne nikli woh,
Par fir bhi baarish mein doobi jaa rahi thi
Apne liye ghosla nahi dhundh paa rahi thi.

Dekhkar use bola mera Nanha Munna
Aa chidiya! Mere ghar aakar baithna,
Maano usne sun lee iski cheekhe
Seedhe udhkar aa baithi woh mere ghar ke bagiche,
Khush hokar bajayi Munne ne taali
Darkar bechari ud gayi chidiya fir usi ped ke daali!



Translation (English) - A Lovely Bird!

A tiny sparrow came in our window pane
Fully drenched it was in the rain,
To avoid getting further wet
Flew it across and sat on the branch of a tree to get set,
But it was of little help though the tree was huge
And the poor bird could not find any better refuge!

This sight caught attention of my little son
Come, O sparrow! to my home, u will have trouble none,
Soon the sparrow flew and sat on our adjoining garden
As if it had heard the shreiks of my little one,
His joy knew no bounds and he started clapping happily,
The tiny bird got scared and back it flew to the same tree anxiously!

    Lovely poem, Kavya. Just mention birds and you have my attention. I have 3 feeders and 2 bird baths in my yard, and, needless to say, plenty of birds. I can't imagine my garden without them. Sometimes I feel like a child, delighting in the simple pleasures of nature. (Report) Reply

    10 for Hindustani, and 10 for English version Kavya, you presented innocence and translated innocence too...in our tradition juvenile poems or such light poems matter a lot, or aap ne iss rivayat ko boht acchhay se nibhaya he...naazuk nazam! ! ! (Report) Reply
