Basant Panchami Poems in Hindi


Short Hindi Poem On Vasant Panchami
Sardi Ko Dedo Vidaayi,
Basant Ki Hai Ritu Aayi.
Hawa Saurabh Lekar Aayi,
Phulon Ne Jise Lutaayi.
Baagon Mein Bahaar Hai,
Bhaunron Ki Gunjar Hai.
Titli Ki Bharmaar Hai.

Basant Panchami Poem in Hindi
Udi-Udi Re Udi Patang,
Dekho Baadlon Ke Sang.
Hawa Ke Sang Baatein Karti,
Unchaayion Se Kabhi Na Darti.
Dhili Chhodoge Jab Dor,
Door Hoti Jaaye Ye Aur.
Sundar Si Iski Puchhal,
Kya Khoob Khaati Hai Bal.

Jab Patang Hai Pench Ladaati,
Ek Kate, Ek Jhat Mud Aati.
Lutane Ko Bachche Betaab,
Pichhe Daude Behisaab
