Are, Sansar Sansar

— Bahinabai Chaudhari

अरे, संसार संसार, जसा तवा चुल्ह्यावर
आधी हाताला चटके तंव्हा मिळते भाकर !

अरे, संसार संसार, खोटा कधी म्हनू नहीं
राउळाच्या कयसाले, लोटा कधी म्हनू नहीं

अरे, संसार संसार, नही रडनं, कुढनं
येड्या, गयांतला हार, म्हनू नको रे लोढनं !

अरे, संसार संसार, खीरा येलावरचा तोड
एक तोंडामधी कडू, बाकी अवघा लागे गोड

अरे, संसार संसार, म्हनू नको रे भीलावा
त्याले गोड भीमफूल, मधी गोडंब्याचा ठेवा

देखा संसार संसार, शेंग वरतून काटे
अरे, वरतून काटे, मधी चिक्ने सागरगोटे

ऐका, संसार संसार, दोन्ही जीवांचा इचार
देतो सुखाले नकार, अन्‌ दुःखाले होकार

देखा, संसार संसार, दोन जीवांचा सुधार
कदी नगद उधार, सुखदुःखाचा बेपार !

अरे, संसार संसार, असा मोठा जादूगार
माझ्या जीवाचा मंतर, त्याच्यावरती मदार

असा, संसार संसार, आधी देवाचा ईसार
माझ्या देवाचा जोजार, मग जीवाचा आधार !

Faren Er Der, Stormklokken Ringer

Emil Aarestrup

Faren er der, Stormklokken ringer
Og jeg er forloren, himmelske Smerte!

Have sammensvoret sig mod mit Hjerte.
