ganga – a poem by Sumitranandan Pant

ab aadha jal nishchal, peela,–
aadha jal chanchal au’, neela–
geele tan par mrdu sandhyaatap
simata resham pat sa dheela.
… … … …
aise sone ke saanjh praat,
aise chaandee ke divas raat,
le jaatee baha kahaan ganga
jeevan ke yug kshan,– kise gyaat!

vishrut him parvat se nirgat,
kiranojval chal kal oormi nirat,
yamuna, gomatee aadee se mil
hotee yah saagar mein parinat.

yah bhaugolik ganga parichit,
jisake tat par bahu nagar prathit,
is jad ganga se milee huee
jan ganga ek aur jeevit!

vah vishnupadee, shiv mauli sruta,
vah bheeshm prasoo au’ jahnu suta,
vah dev nimnaga, svarganga,
vah sagar putr taarinee shruta.

vah ganga, yah keval chhaaya,
vah lok chetana, yah maaya,
vah aatm vaahinee jyoti saree,
yah bhoo patita, kanchuk kaaya.

vah ganga jan man se ni:srt,
jisamen bahu budabud yug nartit,
vah aaj tarangit, sansrti ke
mrt saikat ko karane plaavit.

dishi dishi ka jan mat vaahit kar,
vah banee akool atal saagar,
bhar degee dishi pal pulinon mein
vah nav nav jeevan kee mrd urvar!
… … … … …
ab nabh par rekha shashi shobhit,
ganga ka jal shyaamal, kampit,
laharon par chaandee kee kiranen
karateen prakaashamay kuchh ankit!
