Madhushala by Harivansh Rai Bachchan – Part 10

Matwaalaapan haalaa se le
maine taj di hai haalaa,
paagalpan lekar pyaale se,
maine tyaag diyaa pyaalaa,
saaki se mil, saaki me mil
apnaapan mai bhool gayaa,
mil madhushala ki madhutaa me
bhool gayaa mai madhushala.

kahaan gayaa wah swargik saaki,
kahaan gayee surbhit haalaa,
kahaan gayaa swapnil madiraalaya,
kahaan gayaa swarnim pyaalaa!
pinewaalo ne madiraa kaa
mulya, haay, kab pahachaanaa?
phoot chukaa jab madhu ka pyaalaa,
toot chuki jab madhushala.

apne yug me sabko anupam
gyaat hui apni haalaa,
apne yug me sabko adbhut
gyaat hua apnaa pyaalaa,
phir bhi wridhon se jab puchaa
ek yahi uttar paayaa –
ab na rahe wah peenewale,
ab na rahi wah madhushala !

kitne marm jataa jaati hai
baar-baar aakar haalaa,
kitne bhed bataa jaataa hai
baar-baar aakar pyaalaa,
kitne arthon ko sanketon
se batlaa jaati saaki,
phir bhi peenewaalon ko hai
ek paheli madhushaalaa.

jitni dil ki gahraayi ho
utnaa gahraa hai pyaalaa,
jitni man ki maadaktaa ho
utni maadak hai haalaa,
jitni ur ki bhaavuktaa ho
utnaa sundar saaki hai
jitnaa hi jo rasik, use hai
utni rasmay madhushala.
