dupahariya – a poem by Kedarnath Singh

jharane lage neem ke patte
badhane lagee udaasee man kee,

udane lagee bujhe kheton se
jhur-jhur sarason kee rangeenee,
dhoosar dhoop huee man par jyon—sudhiyon kee chaadar anabeenee,

din ke is sunasaan pahar mein
ruk-see gaee pragati jeevan kee.

saans rok kar khade ho gae
lute-lute-se sheesham unman,
chilbil kee nangee baanhon mein
bharane laga ek khoyaapan,

badee ho gaee katu kaanon ko
chur-mur dhvani baanson ke van kee.

thak kar thahar gaee dupahariya,
ruk kar saham gaee chaubaee,
aankhon ke is veeraane mein—
aur chamakane lagee rukhaee,

praan, aa gae dardeele din,
beet gaeen raaten thithuran kee.
