For The Children - Poem By Gary Snyder In Hindi/Urdu Translation

BachoN k liyay

Oonchi pahaDian, dhalaiN
sun aankhDon ki
hamaray saamnay hain
bahut dhalay oopar chaDna
aur fir neechay aana
sub hamaaray saamnay hai

agli shatabdi main
ya us ki agli main
lok kehtay hain
waadiaN hoNgi, haray ghaas ki charagah hongi
agar aman main wahan hum paunch gayay

Is kalgi ko chaDnay k liyay
main tum ko aur tumaray bachoN ko
kehna chahta hoon:

saath saath raho
fooloN ko samjo, jaano
bhaar saath na le kar chalo.


For The Children - Poem by Gary Snyder

The rising hills, the slopes,
of statistics
lie before us,
the steep climb
of everything, going up,
up, as we all
go down.

In the next century
or the one beyond that,
they say,
are valleys, pastures,
we can meet there in peace
if we make it.

To climb these coming crests
one word to you, to
you and your children:

stay together
learn the flowers
go light

Gary Snyder

For every 'cause' there is a reaction. For every reason there is a purpose under heaven! I enjoyed reading your poem because it began with questions. Until humanity seeks the answers for questions unanswered...we will all continue to 'assume' that evil acts...like CREATION...has its own unexplained beginnings!
