जीवन की ही जय हो

मृषा मृत्यु का भय है
जीवन की ही जय है ।

जीव की जड़ जमा रहा है
नित नव वैभव कमा रहा है
यह आत्मा अक्षय है
जीवन की ही जय है।

नया जन्म ही जग पाता है
मरण मूढ़-सा रह जाता है
एक बीज सौ उपजाता है
सृष्टा बड़ा सदय है
जीवन की ही जय है।

जीवन पर सौ बार मरूँ मैं
क्या इस धन को गाड़ धरूँ मैं
यदि न उचित उपयोग करूँ मैं
तो फिर महाप्रलय है
जीवन की ही जय है।

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
