“I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” By: William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the milky way,

They stretched in never-ending line

Along the margin of a bay:

Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they

Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:

A poet could not but be gay,

In such a jocund company:

I gazed—and gazed—but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils.

Two Hindi Poems

I don’t generally post Hindi poems here, and I have stopped accepting reader’s submission too. However, when these poems came, I couldn’t say no as being an aspiring writer myself, I fully know what a mere Yes and No can feel like.

So here are two poems sent by one of my readers. Both are in Hindi. If you can understand Hindi, do read and let the poet have your views.

The following two poems have been written by Nibedita Nath. 

“Yeh Meri Kavitaa…”

YEH  JIBAN MERA  APRICHIT SA LAGE….
ISMAIN  SARE  CHHEHERE AJNABI SE LAGE
IK AASHA JEEVAN KA DHUNDLA DHUNDLA SA LAGE
PHIR BHI MAN MAIN KOI BISWAS JAGE
ADHURA HAR SAPNA…BIKHRE SARE JIBAN KE PANNE..
KOI AAYE …KOI JAAYE…BAS YADON KE GHNUGURU REH GAYE
SAMETI RAHI NANHI KALIYON KO …JO KABHI BAHAR BAN KAR KHILE THE..
AAJ  WOH PATJADH KE AAGOSH MAIN..
RUKNA CHHATI  DO PAL KAHIN..PHIR BHI NA RUK PAUUN MAIN..
BHAGNA ABHI..DAUDNA HAI…
KUCH PAANA HAI..KUCH APNANA HAI..
DUR BAHUT JANA HAI MUJHE..
SAPNON KO SAMETNA HAI..
BAS YEHI..YEHI TU MERA PARICHAYA HAI…
MERA AUR SIRF MERA…
