A Flower’s Desire-Pushp Ki Abhilasha

A great poem on desire of  a flower

Reminds me of school days.Wonderfully written and used to be my favorite poem during school days …………….

 

चाह नहीं मै सुरबाला के गहनों में गुंथा जाऊं


चाह नहीं प्रेमी माला मे बिंध , प्यारी को ललचओं

roses
चाह नहीं सम्राटों के शव पर , हे हरी डाला जाऊं


चाह नहीं देवों के सर पर चधों , भाग्य पर इतराऊँ


मुझे तोड़ लेना बनमाली ,उस पथ पर तुम देना फेंक


मात्र  भूमि पैर शीश चढ़ने ,जिस पथ जाएँ वीर अनेक

                           माखनलाल चतुर्वेदी (Makhanlal chaturvedy)

English Tranlation

The Yearning of a Flower Desireth not to be on the young lass’ Tresses…living twice all over,

 Desireth not to be in a garland Binding, enticing young lovers, 

Desireth not to rest on the mortals Of Emperors – aren’t we equally God’s own?

 
Desireth not to be on the heads of Gods To take pride in mere fortune,

Pick me out, O Gardener! 

Strew me on the path that the Brave tread To sacrifice for Motherland!

 Let me, in obeisance, bow my head!
