Barish Ka Pahla Qatra

ghanghor ghata tuli khadi thi

par buund abhi nahin padi thi

har qatra ke dil men tha ye khatra

nachiz huun main gharib qatra

tar mujh se kisi ka lab na hoga

main aur ki guun na aap joga

kya khet ki main bujha.unga pyaas

apna hi karunga satyanas

khali hathon se kya sakhavat

phiki baton men kya halavat

kis birte pe main karun dileri

main kaun huun kya bisat meri

har qatra ke dil men tha yahi gham

sargoshiyan ho rahi thiin baham

khichdi si ghata men pak rahi thi

kuchh kuchh bijli chamak rahi thi

ik qatra ki tha bada dilavar

himmat ke muhit ka shanavar

faiyyaz o javvad o nek-niyyat

bhadki us ki rag-e-hamiyyat

bola lalkar kar ki aao!

mere pichhe qadam badhao

kar guzro jo ho sake kuchh ehsan

Daalo murda zamin men jaan

yaro! ye hachar-machar kahan tak

apni si karo bane jahan tak

mil kar jo karoge jan-fishani

maidan pe pher doge paani

kahta huun ye sab se barmala main

aate ho to aao lo chala main

ye kah ke vo ho gaya ravana

”dushvar hai ji pe khel jana”

har-chand ki tha vo be-bizaat

ki us ne magar badi shujaat

dekhi jurat jo us sakhi ki

do-char ne aur pairvi ki

phir ek ke baad ek lapka

qatra qatra zamin pe tapka

akhir qatron ka bandh gaya taar

barish lagi hone mosla-dhar

paani paani hua bayaban

sairab hue chaman khayaban

thi qaht se paemal khilqat

is menh se hui nihal khilqat

jurat qatra ki kar gai kaam

baaqi hai jahan men aaj tak naam

ai sahibo! qaum ki khabar lo

qatron ka sa ittifaq kar lo

qatron hi se hogi nahr jaari

chal niklengi kashtiyan tumhari
