priy chirantan hai – a poem by Mahadevi Verma

priy chirantan hai sajani,
kshan-kshan naveen suhaasinee mai!

shvaas mein mujhako chhipaakar vah aseem vishaal chir ghan
shoony mein jab chha gaya usakee sajeelee saadh-sa ban,
chhip kahaan usamen sakee
bujh-bujh jalee chal daaminee main.

chhaanh ko usakee sajani, nav aavaran apana banaakar
dhooli mein nij ashru bone mein pahar soone bitaakar,
praat mein hans chhip gaee
le chhalakate drg-yaaminee mai!

milan-mandir mein utha doon jo sumukh se sajal gunthan,
main mitoon priy mein, mita jyon tapt sikata mein salil kan,
sajani! madhur nijatv de
kaise miloon abhimaaninee main!

deep-see yug-yug jaloon par vah subhag itana bata de
phoonk se usakee bujhoon tab kshaar hee mera pata de!
vah rahe aaraadhy chinmay
mrnmayee anuraaginee main!

sajal seemit putaliyaan, par chitr amit aseem ka vah
chaah ek anant basatee praan kintu aseem-sa vah!
rajakanon mein khelatee kis
viraj vidhu kee chaandanee main?
