jo beet gayi so baat gayi

While browsing through Rohit Kaul's blog, I was pleasantly reminded of this Harivansh Rai Bachchan poem which I reproduce here, copyrights be damned ;-)

Jeevan mein ek sitara tha
maana vah behad pyara tha.
Vah doob gaya to doob gaya.
Ambar kay angan ko dekho
kitne iske taare toote
kitne iske pyare chhoote.
Jo chhoot gaye fir kahan mile.
Par bolo toote taaron par
kab ambar shok manata hai.
Jo beet gayi so baat gayi.

Jeevan mein vah tha ek kusum
the us par nitya nichhavar tum.
Vah sookh gaya to sookh gaya.
Madhuvan ki chhaati ko dekho
sookhi kitni iski kaliyan
murjhaayi kitni vallariyan.
Jo murjhayi woh fir kahan khili.
Par bolo sookhe phoolon par
kab madhuban shor machata hai.
Jo beet gayi so baat gayi.

Jeevan mein madhu ka pyala tha
tumne tan man de daala tha.
Vah toot gaya to toot gaya.
Madiralay ke angan ko dekho
kitne pyale hil jate hain
gir mitti mein mil jaate hain.
Jo girte hain kab uthate hain.
Par bolo toote pyalo par
kab madiralaya pachhatata hai
Jo beet gayi so baat gayi.

Mridu mitti ke hain bane hue
madhughat foota hi karte hain.
Laghu jeevan lekar aaye hain
pyale toota hi karte hain.
Fir bhi madiralaya ke andar
madhu ke ghat hain
madhupyale hain.
Jo madakta ke mare hain
ve madhu loota hi Karte hain.
Vah kachcha peene wala hai
jiski mamta ghat pyalon par
jo sachche madhu se jala hua
kab rota hai chillata hai
Jo beet gayi so baat gayi.
