महादेवी वर्मा

मैं नीर भरी दु:ख की बदली!

It is a while that I have put any new poem in my favourite category Sahitya. Reading and reciting poetries give the kind of bliss which is unmatched. This particular poem is written by Mahadevi Verma, an excellent poetess. She was born in Farrukhabad, U.P. Her most remarkable book is Yama. Her poems contain very sublime sorrow, which will give you a kind of feeling that you cannot describe. The rhythm in her poems is magical. In this poem, she is describing herself as a cloud, very small cloud which is made of sorrow. She says that in this entire infinite sky, not even a single corner is going to be mine. Only this is my introduction and only this is my history that yesterday I came into existence and it’s today that I am destroyed.

मैं नीर भरी दु:ख की बदली!
स्पंदन में चिर निस्पंद बसा,
क्रन्दन में आहत विश्व हंसा,
नयनों में दीपक से जलते,
पलकों में निर्झर्णी मचली!

मेरा पग पग संगीत भरा,
श्वासों में स्वप्न पराग झरा,
नभ के नव रंग बुनते दुकूल,
छाया में मलय बयार पली,

मैं क्षितिज भ्रकुटि पर घिर धूमिल,
चिंता का भार बनी अविरल,
रज-कण पर जल-कण हो बरसी,
नव जीवन अंकुर बन निकली!

पथ न मलिन करता आना,
पद चिन्ह न दे जाता जाना,
सुधि मेरे आगम की जग में,
सुख की सिहरन हो अंत खिली!

विस्तृत नभ का कोई कोना,
मेरा न कभी अपना होना,
परिचय इतना इतिहास यही 
उमडी कल थी मिट आज चली!
