Madhushala by Harivansh Rai Bachchan- Part 6

Aaj milaa avsar, tab phir kyon
mai na chakhun ji-bhar haalaa,
aaj milaa maukaa, tab phir kyon
dhal na lu ji-bhar pyaalaa,
chedchaad apne saaki se
aaj na kyon ji-bhar kar lu,
ek baar hi to milni hai
jivan ki yah madhushala.

do din hi mujhe madhu pilaakar
oob uthi saakibaalaa,
bharkar ab khiskaa deti hai
wah mere aage pyaalaa,
naaz, adaa, andaazon se ab
haai pilaanaa door hua,
ab to kar deti hai kewal
pharz adaayi madhushala.

chote se jivan me kitna
pyaar karun, pi lun haalaa,
aane ke hi saath jagat me
kahlaayaa ‘jaanewaalaa’,
swagat ke hi saath vidaa ki
hoti dekhi taiyaari,
band lagi hone khulte hi
meri jivan madhushala.

kyaa pinaa, nirdwanda na jab tak
dhaalaa pyaalon par pyaalaa,
kya jinaa, nishchinta na jab tak
saath rahe saakibaalaa,
khone kaa bhay, haaye, lagaa hai
paane ke sukh ke peeche,
milne kaa aanand na deti
milkar ke bhi madhushala.

mujhe pilaane ko laaye ho
itni thodi-si haalaa !
mujhe dikhaane ko laaye ho
ek yahi chichlaa pyaalaa !
itni pi jine se achchaa
saagar ki le pyaas maru,
sindhu-trishaa di kisne rachkar
bindu-baraabar madhushala.
