Madhushala by Harivansh Rai Bachchan- Part 4

Laal suraa ki dhaar lapat-si
kah na ise denaa jwaalaa,
phenil madiraa hai, mat isko
kah denaa ur kaa chaalaa,
dard nashaa hai is madiraa kaa,
vigatsmritiyaan saaki hain;
peeda me aanand jise ho,
aaye meri madhushala.

laalaayit adhron se jisne,
haay, nahin choomi haalaa,
harsh-vikampit kar se jisne,
haa, na chuaa madhu kaa pyaalaa,
haat pakad lajjit saaki kaa
paas nahin jisne kheechaa,
vyarth sukhaa daali jeevan ki
usne madhumaya madhushala.

nahin jaantaa kaun, manuj
aayaa bankar peenewaalaa,
kaun aparichit us saaki se,
jisne doodh pilaa paalaa;
jeevan paakar maanav peekar
mast rahe, is kaaran hi,
jag me aakar sabse pahle
paayi usne madhushala.

surya bane madhu ka vikretaa,
sindhu bane ghat, jal, haalaa,
baadal ban-ban aaye saaki,
bhoomi bane madhu kaa pyaalaa,
jhadi lagaakar barse madiraa
rimjhim, rimjhim, rimjhim kar,
beli, vitap, trin ban mai peeyun,
varshaa ritu ho madhushala.

adhron par ho koi bhi ras
jihwa par lagti haalaa,
bhaajan ho koi haathon mein
lagtaa rakkhaa hai pyaalaa,
har soorat saaki ki soorat
mein parivartit ho jaati,
aankhon ke aage ho kuch bhi,
aankhon me hai madhushala.
