Yey Chinar ke Patte

 
 
Yey chinar ke patte

Joolte eitratee

Choomte hai vaddi ke dhool ko

Kitnee masoom

Kitnee Khusnaseeb

Kashmir ke vadiyoo me

Joola julte

Pamposh ki kalioo (petals) pe

Aoos(dew) ke boodain (droplets)

Rimjim rimjim ye chapoo ka dolana

Shikare me Gungunataa ye majhee

Kab aaoo ghe

Laut ke aye musafir

Kab aaoo ghe oh bulbul

Ye vadiaan bula rahee hain thume.

Dal gheel ka panee,

Pamposh ke kaliaan

Yeh vaadian ye galiaan

Bula rahee hain thume!

Pamposh (kashmiri word)=lotus

Shikara= a small boat seen on the waves of Dal Lake,many old hindi movies have used this in songs....ye chand sa rosan chera...

This poem touched me. The simplicity with which deep feelings are expressed make the poem one to remember, recite and repeat.

Lilting poem Emotions rising and falling with the rhythm and rhyme Of the oar against the waves As the oarsman pulls the boat Cutting a gentle v-path On the Dal's limpid waters.
