दो गीत / गिरधर राठी

हवा सफ़र

चल पडी हवा
बिखरे बादल
आ गई धूप
बदला मौसम
हम आ निकले इंडिया गेट
जाना था लाल क़िला हमको
लो अब तो हम हो गए लेट
खाना भी खाना है हमको
लेकिन फूलों पर
है निखार
लगता है आई
है बहार
कुछ देर और रुक जाएं यहां
फिर चलें हवा ले चले जहां


आधा ककहरा

कट कटाकट कट कट कट
खट खटाखट खट खट खट
गट गटागट गट गट गट
घट घटाघट घट घट घट
चटपट चटपट चट चट चट
झटपट झटपट झट झट झट
जग जगाजग जग जग जग
झक झकाझक झक झक झक
टन टनाटन टन टन टन
ठन ठनाठन ठन ठन ठन
डम डमाडम डमरू बोल
ढन ढनाढन ढक्कन खोल
ननकू बेटू नट नटखट
