बरधनी / नन्दसि

बरधनी / नन्दसि ।
बरधनी मोर रसियानी वरधना नि बुझे वात
बासमतीर खिर छरिये खाय उस्ना चौलेर भात
नन्दसि नन्देर मरद बरधनिक भुलवा चाय
बारित अप्नार कदमा सरे कुम्ह्रार ताय बेराय
दाल भात भाजी बरधनी सवदिन केतेक खाय
कोयदिन रस्सा कोयदिन काञ्जीत जिभा ललचाय
लालच नि भाल नन्दसि बंशित माछ मारालजाय
जिभार लालचत खपात आगिन लाग्ले कि उपाय
मरद जात भमरा जानेर करे कायँ परवाय
फूलत भुलत हुलगुलत नि मरबाव डराय
ननद हामार सोझो सैतान सोझुवाय बुझे बात
थप्काय ना ते मरुवा पोरोक वहि सैतानेर हात
भोल भोल बुझागेल बरधनी छरी दी इला गप
बरधनी नन्दसिर नाता मजाक होल इला सप
हामाव जानि गुरुभेदी नन्दसिलार बात किरङ
मन जाँचुवार ताने हामार हय इला बात हिरङ
होक वा ना होक जेहोक तम्हाँ हामार बिचत रोह्क
ननदक ना सुनायदन तम्हाँर दिल जे कोहोक
कुम्ह्रा कद्दुत मन ना दौराय कदमा ते माजा हय
घरेर अन पानी बेर्छानी अपनाते आनन्दमय
