चाँद अभी भी मद्धम है

चाँद अभी भी मद्धम है
कब आओगे तुम प्रिय
बन के सूरज मेरे
देकर अपनत्व की गरिमा
करोगे रौशन अंतः मेरा।

चाँद अभी भी मद्धम है
कब आओगे तुम प्रिय
बन के हवा का झोंका
उड़ा के ज़ुल्फ़ें मेरी
करोगे उजागर रँग मेरा।

चाँद अभी भी मद्धम है
कब आओगे तुम प्रिय
बन के मन मीत मेरे
चूम कर अधर मेरे
करोगे कुंदन तन मेरा।

  1. English translation

    The moon is still dark
    I long for break of dawn
    to bask in the warmth
    of your presence
    bonding comfort

    The moon is still dark
    and the fog heavy
    I await the gust of wind
    to blow my hair free
    brighten my countenance

    The moon is still dark
    I wait for love
    to engulf my being,
    the Midas touch
    to turn me gold

    1. Thanks Reena… I wonder how you do it… I also had an English poem in response to your challenge…. even though it was an original piece, it seems more of a translation – I could not decouple from the imagery present in Hindi poems… On the other hand, your translation looks like an original work… hats off…

      1. Thanks! The English poem is fine. Appearance of originality needs addition and deletion of certain elements. In some cases, the original poet may not be okay with it.
        I have kept aside Kumar Vishwas’s poem – ‘jo shilalekh ban sakta tha, akhbaar banake kya paya’ for translation. Not an easy task. I will have to devote at least 30-60 min.
