children's mart / बच्चों का बिज़नस

लकड़ी का एक स्टूल लिया
सपनों से भी खूब बड़ा
अण्डों के तीन क्रैट रखे
दो खाली और एक भरा
एक तरफ़ टाफियों का डिब्बा
पीला, गुलाबी और हरा
एक तरफ़ माचिस की डिबिया
(और) सिगरेट का डिब्बा डरा-डरा
आज गली में नया खुला
बच्चों का बिज़नस, खरा-खरा


a big stool made of wood
bigger than dreams' delight
three crates put over it
two empty, one full of eggs off-white
one side has the candies cool
pink, green, yellow and bright
the other has a matchbox
and cigarettes huddling in fright
and lo behold, a treat emerges for the eyes
the children's mart and a genuine price
