taaj – a poem by Sumitranandan Pant

haay! mrtyu ka aisa amar, apaarthiv poojan?
jab vishann, nirjeev pada ho jag ka jeevan!
sang-saudh mein ho shrngaar maran ka shobhan,
nagn, kshudhaatur, vaas-viheen rahen jeevit jan?

maanav! aisee bhee virakti kya jeevan ke prati?
aatma ka apamaan, pret au’ chhaaya se rati!!
prem-archana yahee, karen ham maran ko varan?
sthaapit kar kankaal, bharen jeevan ka praangan?
shav ko den ham roop, rang, aadar maanan ka
maanav ko ham kutsit chitr bana den shav ka?

gat-yug ke bahu dharm-roodhi ke taaj manohar
maanav ke mohaandh hrday mein kie hue ghar!
bhool gaye ham jeevan ka sandesh anashvar,
mrtakon ke hain mrtak, jeevaton ka hai eeshvar!
