कविता (Kavita – Poem) : प्राप्ति (Praapti – Reception)
कवि (Kavi – Poet) : सूर्यकांत त्रिपाठी ‘निराला’ (Suryakant Tripathi ‘Nirala’)

तुम्हें खोजता था मैं,
पा नहीं सका,
हवा बन बहीं तुम, जब
मैं थका, रुका ।

I was searching for you,
Could not find,
You blew like wind, when
I became tired,  I stopped.

मुझे भर लिया तुमने गोद में,
कितने चुम्बन दिये,
मेरे मानव-मनोविनोद में
नैसर्गिकता लिये;

You took me in your lap,
How many kisses given,
In my human-fling
For the innateness;

सूखे श्रम सीकर वे
छबि के निर्झर झरे नयनों से,
शक्त शिरा‌एँ हु‌ईं रक्त-वाह ले,
मिलीं – तुम मिलीं, अन्तर कह उठा
जब थका, रुका ।

By bearing dried labor they
flowed fountains of image from eyes,
lifeless vessels filled with the blood,
Met – You met, said the difference
When tired,  I stopped.

    हमने तो बचपन से निराला जी की कवितायें पढ़ीं हैं फिर भी धन्यवाद, उनका लिखने का तरीका अप्रतिम है

    यह कविता हमारे हिंदी पाठ्यपुस्तक मे थी, सन १९५७ मे I हम उसे गाते थे I मुझे अब समझ मे आती है कि वह राग भैरवी मे संयोजित था I
