झुँझलाते ग्रीष्म की गर्मी में, वर्षा की लगाकर बैठे आस।
आसमां की ओर सुखा मुख, तरबतर स्वेद से मनुज उदास।।

पर उत्पीड़न पर लगा विराम, जो किया पवन ने तपहरण।
और एक दिन सहसा हुआ, शीतल 'मानस' वातावरण।।

वायु के 'मानस' वेग से, मेघो की आई काली टोली।
झूम झूम कर मस्त मगन, हर सुमन, टहनी, पत्ती डोली।।

जो चमकी दो क्षण दामिनी, तो गूँज उठे धरणी के स्पंदन।
संध्या घबराई सुन अपने, मेघों का रोमांचित गर्जन।।

नभ से मोतियों का झरना, टिप टिप हौले से बरसे।
मेंह की बूंदों का एहसास, प्यासी पृथ्वी कब से तरसे।।

भूमि पर जल पड़ते ही, मिट्टी की फैले सुरभि अनुपम।
पानी से हो पुनीत 'मानस', दिखे निसर्ग कितना हरितम।।

राहत की सर्व साँस भरे, जब तपते सूर्य पर लगे लगाम।
भीगी आँखों से 'मानस' देखो, पहली बारिश की मुस्कान।।

Transliteration into English:

Pehli Baarish Ki Muskaan

Jhunjhlaate grishma ki garmi mein, varsha ki lagaa kar baithe aas,
Aasmaa ki aor sukha mukh, tarbatar swed se manuj udaas...

Par utpidan par lagaa viraam, jo kiya pawan ne tapaharan,
Aur ek din sahasaa huya, sheetal 'Manas' vaataavaran...

Vaayu ke 'Manas' veg se, megho ki aai kaali toli,
Jhoom jhoom kar mast magan, har suman, tehni, patti doli...

Jo chamka do kshan damini, toh goonj uthe dharni ke spandan,
Sandhya ghabraai sun apne, megho ka romaanchit garjan...

Nabh se motiyo ka jharna, tip tip haule se barse,
Menha ki boondo ka ehsaas, pyaasi prithvi kab se tarse...

Bhoomi par jal padte hi, mitti ki faile surbhi anupam,
Paani se ho puneet 'Manas', dikhe nisarg kitna haritam...

Raahat ki sarva saas bhare, jab tapte surya par lage lagaam,
Bheegi aankho se 'Manas' dekho, pehli baarish ki muskaan...

Smile of the First Rain

In the heat of blistering summer, seated hoping for the rains, with the dry mouth facing towards sky, people are drenched in sweat.

But, there was a respite from the harassment, as the wind abducted the heat. And one day, all of a sudden, the surrounding became cool...

When the black crowd of clouds arrived by the pace of wind, every swinging flower, branch and leaf rocked being engrossed in conviviality.

As the lightning flashes for two moments, the vibrations of the earth reverberate. The Evening became frightened, listening to her clouds' thrilling roar.

The waterfall of pearls slowly pours down from the sky drop by drop. Since how long have the thirsty earth longed for the feeling of raindrops!

No sooner than the water falls on the ground, does the unparalleled aroma of the soil spreads. Getting sanctified by water, how green the nature looks!

Everyone breathes with relief, when the burning sun is reined in, seeing with wet eyes, the smile of the first rain...
