mithila – a poem by Dinkar

main patajhad kee koyal udaas,
bikhare vaibhav kee raanee hoon
main haree-bharee him-shail-tatee
kee vismrt svapn-kahaanee hoon.

apanee maan kee main vaam bhrkuti,
garima kee hoon dhoomil chhaaya,
main vikal saandhy raaginee karun,
main murajhee sushama kee maaya.

main ksheenaprabha, main hat-aabha,
samprati, bhikhaarinee matavaalee,
khandahar mein khoj rahee apane
ujade suhaag kee hoon laalee.

main janak kapil kee puny-janani,
mere putron ka maha gyaan.
meree seeta ne diya vishv
kee ramanee ko aadarsh-daan.

main vaishaalee ke aasapaas
baithee nit khandahar mein ajaan,
sunatee hoon saashru nayan apane
lichchhavi-veeron ke keerti-gaan.

neerav nishi mein gandakee vimal
kar detee mere vikal praan,
main khadee teer par sunatee hoon
vidyaapati-kavi ke madhur gaan.

neelam-ghan garaj-garaj barasen
rimajhim-rimajhim-rimajhim athor,
laharen gaatee hain madhu-vihaag,
‘he, he sakhi ! hamar dukhak na or.’

chaandanee-beech dhan-kheton mein
hariyaalee ban laharaatee hoon,
aatee kuchh sudhi, pagalee daudo
main kapilavastu ko jaatee hoon.

bikharee lat, aansoo chhalak rahe,
main phiratee hoon maaree-maaree.
kan-kan mein khoj rahee apanee
khoee anant nidhiyaan saaree.

main ujade upavan kee maalin,
uthatee mere hiy visham hookh,
kokila nahin, is kunj-beech
rah-rah ateet-sudhi rahee kook.

main patajhad kee koyal udaas,
bikhare vaibhav kee raanee hoon,
main haree-bharee himashail-tatee
kee vismrt svapn-kahaanee hoon.
