         जख्या जमगे
कवि : सर्वेश जुयाल (1914, सुजगौं )
रोजी पुंगड्यों जख्या जमगे गोडिक करणों भि क्या च।
हऴया पराया   दगड़ा ढीका फोड़िक मरणो भी क्या च
छौंदा मालिक रांड ह्वेग्याँ नथुली को मरजात क्या च
सुख की गाण्यू ज्वानी ढळगे बौळेक करणों भी क्या च।
बच्यौंदा छन पण बोलि बिराणि,   ऊँन बिंगणो भी क्या च
माँ जैन  देखि   हि नी च अपणी लाज तौंक   हरणों भी क्या च
जिकुड़ी छन जो निरा ढुंगा ऊं पर जमणा भी क्या च
आँखा छन पण अंसधारी नी छन ऊँन बगणो भी क्या च
मनख्या का बीच कंदूड़ खोलि सुंगरु न करणों भी क्या च
अंधा बैरों की डारी का बीच बोलिक करणों भी क्या च

------------------ Literal Translation ------------
The Jakhya weeds have come up, what is the use of hoeing
The plough man has gone to other‘s farm, what is the use of breaking earth lump
She is spending life as widow, what is the use of ornaments and jewels
The juvenile age gone by dreaming comforts, what is the use of maddening
They talk with me but on foreign language, they will not understand my language
Those did not see their mother, what is the use of insulting them
Their heart is of stone, there won’t grow any plant
The eyes are tearless, the tears won’t flow
What pigs would do opening their ears among human beings
What is the use of telling something among blind and deaf
