    After a failed Ensembled Pictures and a successful Ensembled Thoughts, here's the one for poems that I loved.

    Poem could either be in English or Hindi.

    Here I go.

    1》वृक्ष हों भले खड़े,
    हों घने हों बड़े,
    एक पत्र छाँह भी,
    माँग मत, माँग मत, माँग मत,
    अग्निपथ अग्निपथ अग्निपथ।

    तू न थकेगा कभी,
    तू न रुकेगा कभी,
    तू न मुड़ेगा कभी,
    कर शपथ, कर शपथ, कर शपथ,
    अग्निपथ अग्निपथ अग्निपथ।

    यह महान दृश्य है,
    चल रहा मनुष्य है,
    अश्रु श्वेत रक्त से,
    लथपथ लथपथ लथपथ,
    अग्निपथ अग्निपथ अग्निपथ।

    ~ अग्निपथ {हरिवंश राय बच्चन}

    2》When everything was fine
    And the notion of sin had vanished
    And the earth was ready
    In universal peace
    To consume and rejoice
    Without creeds and utopias,

    I, for unknown reasons,
    Surrounded by the books
    Of prophets and theologians,
    Of philosophers, poets,
    Searched for an answer,
    Scowling, grimacing,
    Waking up at night, muttering at dawn.

    What oppressed me so much
    Was a bit shameful.
    Talking of it aloud
    Would show neither tact nor prudence.
    It might even seem an outrage
    Against the health of mankind.

    Alas, my memory
    Does not want to leave me
    And in it, live beings
    Each with its own pain,
    Each with its own dying,
    Its own trepidation.

    Why then innocence
    On paradisal beaches,
    An impeccable sky
    Over the church of hygiene?
    Is it because that
    Was long ago?

    To a saintly man
    --So goes an Arab tale--
    God said somewhat maliciously:
    "Had I revealed to people
    How great a sinner you are,
    They could not praise you."

    "And I," answered the pious one,
    "Had I unveiled to them
    How merciful you are,
    They would not care for you."

    To whom should I turn
    With that affair so dark
    Of pain and also guilt
    In the structure of the world,
    If either here below
    Or over there on high
    No power can abolish
    The cause and the effect?

    Don't think, don't remember
    The death on the cross,
    Though everyday He dies,
    The only one, all-loving,
    Who without any need
    Consented and allowed
    To exist all that is,
    Including nails of torture.

    Totally enigmatic.
    Impossibly intricate.
    Better to stop speech here.
    This language is not for people.
    Blessed be jubilation.
    Vintages and harvests.
    Even if not everyone
    Is granted serenity.

    ~ A Poem For The End Of The Century {Czeslaw Milosz}

    3》हरी हरी दूब पर
    ओस की बूंदे
    अभी थी,
    अभी नहीं हैं|
    ऐसी खुशियाँ
    जो हमेशा हमारा साथ दें
    कभी नहीं थी,
    कहीं नहीं हैं|

    क्काँयर की कोख से
    फूटा बाल सूर्य,
    जब पूरब की गोद में
    पाँव फैलाने लगा,
    तो मेरी बगीची का
    पत्ता-पत्ता जगमगाने लगा,
    मैं उगते सूर्य को नमस्कार करूँ
    या उसके ताप से भाप बनी,
    ओस की बुँदों को ढूंढूँ?

    सूर्य एक सत्य है
    जिसे झुठलाया नहीं जा सकता
    मगर ओस भी तो एक सच्चाई है
    यह बात अलग है कि ओस क्षणिक है
    क्यों न मैं क्षण क्षण को जिऊँ?
    कण-कण मेँ बिखरे सौन्दर्य को पिऊँ?

    सूर्य तो फिर भी उगेगा,
    धूप तो फिर भी खिलेगी,
    लेकिन मेरी बगीची की
    हरी-हरी दूब पर,
    ओस की बूंद
    हर मौसम में नहीं मिलेगी|

    ~ हरी हरी दूब पर {अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी}

    4》Passer-by, these are words. But instead of reading
    I want you to listen: to this frail
    Voice like that of letters eaten by grass.

    Lend an ear, hear first of all the happy bee
    Foraging in our almost rubbed-out names.
    It flits between two sprays of leaves,
    Carrying the sound of branches that are real
    To those that filigree the still unseen.

    Then know an even fainter sound, and let it be
    The endless murmuring of all our shades.
    Their whisper rises from beneath the stones
    To fuse into a single heat with that blind
    Light you are as yet, who can still gaze.

    May your listening be good! Silence
    Is a threshold where a twig breaks in your hand,
    Imperceptibly, as you attempt to disengage
    A name upon a stone:

    And so our absent names untangle your alarms.
    And for you who move away, pensively,
    Here becomes there without ceasing to be.

    ~ Passer-by, These Are Words {Yves Bonnefoy}

    Your -Ensembled- series is incorrect. It really should be - Assembled- Ensembled relates to objects like chairs, costumes and objects. Assembled relates to a collection put together, example - Assembled Poems.

    Just say it out loud to yourself and you'll understand. It doesn't fit into used English.

    5》तुम मुझमें प्रिय, फिर परिचय क्या!

    तारक में छवि, प्राणों में स्मृति
    पलकों में नीरव पद की गति
    लघु उर में पुलकों की संस्कृति
    भर लाई हूँ तेरी चंचल
    और करूँ जग में संचय क्या?

    तेरा मुख सहास अरूणोदय
    परछाई रजनी विषादमय
    वह जागृति वह नींद स्वप्नमय,
    खेल-खेल, थक-थक सोने दे
    मैं समझूँगी सृष्टि प्रलय क्या?

    तेरा अधर विचुंबित प्याला
    तेरी ही विस्मत मिश्रित हाला
    तेरा ही मानस मधुशाला
    फिर पूछूँ क्या मेरे साकी
    देते हो मधुमय विषमय क्या?

    चित्रित तू मैं हूँ रेखा क्रम,
    मधुर राग तू मैं स्वर संगम
    तू असीम मैं सीमा का भ्रम
    काया-छाया में रहस्यमय
    प्रेयसी प्रियतम का अभिनय क्या?

    ~ तुम मुझमें प्रिय, फिर परिचय क्या! {महादेवी वर्मा}

    6》I have loved colours, and not flowers;
    Their motion, not the swallows wings;
    And wasted more than half my hours
    Without the comradeship of things.

    How is it, now, that I can see,
    With love and wonder and delight,
    The children of the hedge and tree,
    The little lords of day and night?

    How is it that I see the roads,
    No longer with usurping eyes,
    A twilight meeting-place for toads,
    A mid-day mart for butterflies?

    I feel, in every midge that hums,
    Life, fugitive and infinite,
    And suddenly the world becomes
    A part of me and I of it.

    7》सच हम नहीं सच तुम नहीं
    सच है सतत संघर्ष ही ।

    संघर्ष से हट कर जिए तो क्या जिए हम या कि तुम।
    जो नत हुआ वह मृत हुआ ज्यों वृन्त से झर कर कुसुम।
    जो पंथ भूल रुका नहीं,
    जो हार देखा झुका नहीं,
    जिसने मरण को भी लिया हो जीत, है जीवन वही।
    सच हम नहीं सच तुम नहीं।

    ऐसा करो जिससे न प्राणों में कहीं जड़ता रहे।
    जो है जहाँ चुपचाप अपने आपसे लड़ता रहे।
    जो भी परिस्थितियाँ मिलें,
    काँटें चुभें, कलियाँ खिलें,
    टूटे नहीं इन्सान, बस सन्देश यौवन का यही।
    सच हम नहीं सच तुम नहीं।

    हमने रचा आओ हमीं अब तोड़ दें इस प्यार को।
    यह क्या मिलन, मिलना वही जो मोड़ दे मँझधार को।
    जो साथ कूलों के चले,
    जो ढाल पाते ही ढले,
    यह ज़िन्दगी क्या ज़िन्दगी जो सिर्फ़ पानी-सी बही।
    सच हम नहीं सच तुम नहीं।

    अपने हृदय का सत्य अपने आप हमको खोजना।
    अपने नयन का नीर अपने आप हमको पोंछना।
    आकाश सुख देगा नहीं,
    धरती पसीजी है कहीं,
    हर एक राही को भटक कर ही दिशा मिलती रही
    सच हम नहीं सच तुम नहीं।

    बेकार है मुस्कान से ढकना हृदय की खिन्नता।
    आदर्श हो सकती नहीं तन और मन की भिन्नता।
    जब तक बंधी है चेतना,
    जब तक प्रणय दुख से घना,
    तब तक न मानूँगा कभी इस राह को ही मैं सही।
    सच हम नहीं सच तुम नहीं।

    8》You say that father write a lot of books,
    but what he write I don't
    understand.
    He was reading to you all the evening,
    but could you really
    make out what he meant?
    What nice stores, mother, you can tell us! Why can't father
    write like that, I wonder?
    Did he never hear from his own mother stories of giants and
    fairies and princesses?
    Has he forgotten them all?
    Often when he gets late for his bath you have to and call him
    an hundred times.
    You wait and keep his dishes warm for him, but he goes on
    writing and forgets.
    Father always plays at making books.
    If ever I go to play in father's room, you come and call me,
    "What a naughty child!"
    If I make the slightest noise you say, "Don't you see that
    father's at his work?"
    What's the fun of always writing and writing?
    When I take up father's pen or pencil and write upon his book
    just as he does,-a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,-why do you get cross with me
    then, mother?
    You never say a word when father writes.
    When my father wastes such heaps of paper, mother, you don't
    seem to mind at all.
    But if I take only one sheet to take a boat with, you say,
    "Child, how troublesome you are!"
    What do you think of father's spoiling sheets and sheets of
    paper with black marks all over both sides?

    9》नहीं मालूम क्यों यहाँ आया
    ठोकरें खाते हुए दिन बीते।
    उठा तो पर न सँभलने पाया
    गिरा व रह गया आँसू पीते।

    ताब बेताब हुई हठ भी हटी
    नाम अभिमान का भी छोड़ दिया।
    देखा तो थी माया की डोर कटी
    सुना वह कहते हैं, हाँ खूब किया।

    पर अहो पास छोड़ आते ही
    वह सब भूत फिर सवार हुए।
    मुझे गफलत में ज़रा पाते ही
    फिर वही पहले के से वार हुए।

    एक भी हाथ सँभाला न गया
    और कमज़ोरों का बस क्या है।
    कहा - निर्दय, कहाँ है तेरी दया,
    मुझे दुख देने में जस क्या है।

    रात को सोते यह सपना देखा
    कि वह कहते हैं "तुम हमारे हो
    भला अब तो मुझे अपना देखा,
    कौन कहता है कि तुम हारे हो।

    अब अगर कोई भी सताये तुम्हें
    तो मेरी याद वहीं कर लेना
    नज़र क्यों काल ही न आये तुम्हें
    प्रेम के भाव तुरत भर लेना"।

    ~ सूर्यकांत त्रिपाठी "निराला" {तुम हमारे हो}

    10》shot in the eye
    shot in the brain
    shot in the ass
    shot like a flower in the dance

    amazing how death wins hands down
    amazing how much credence is given to idiot forms of life

    amazing how laughter has been drowned out
    amazing how viciousness is such a constant

    I must soon declare my own war on their war
    I must hold to my last piece of ground
    I must protect the small space I have made that has allowed me life

    my life not their death
    my death not their death...

    11》हो काल गति से परे चिरंतन,
    अभी यहाँ थे अभी यही हो।
    कभी धरा पर कभी गगन में,
    कभी कहाँ थे कभी कहीं हो।
    तुम्हारी राधा को भान है तुम,
    सकल चराचर में हो समाये।
    बस एक मेरा है भाग्य मोहन,
    कि जिसमें होकर भी तुम नहीं हो।
    न द्वारका में मिलें बिराजे,
    बिरज की गलियों में भी नहीं हो।
    न योगियों के हो ध्यान में तुम,
    अहम जड़े ज्ञान में नहीं हो।
    तुम्हें ये जग ढूँढता है मोहन,
    मगर इसे ये खबर नहीं है।
    बस एक मेरा है भाग्य मोहन,
    अगर कहीं हो तो तुम यही हो।

    12》A fool I was to sleep at noon,
    And wake when night is chilly
    Beneath the comfortless cold moon;
    A fool to pluck my rose too soon,
    A fool to snap my lily.

    My garden-plot I have not kept;
    Faded and all-forsaken,
    I weep as I have never wept:
    Oh it was summer when I slept,
    It's winter now I waken.

    Talk what you please of future spring
    And sun-warm'd sweet to-morrow:--
    Stripp'd bare of hope and everything,
    No more to laugh, no more to sing,
    I sit alone with sorrow.

    ~ Christina Rossetti {A Daughter Of Eve}

    13》जब आवे दिन
    तब देह बुझे या टूटे
    इन आँखों को
    हँसती रहने देना!

    हाथों ने बहुत अनर्थ किये
    पग ठौर-कुठौर चले
    मन के
    आगे भी खोटे लक्ष्य रहे
    वाणी ने (जाने अनजाने) सौ झूठ कहे

    पर आँखों ने
    हार, दुःख, अवसान, मृत्यु का
    अंधकार भी देखा तो
    सच-सच देखा

    इस पार
    उन्हें जब आवे दिन
    ले जावे
    पर उस पार
    उन्हें
    फिर भी आलोक कथा
    सच्ची कहने देना
    अपलक
    हँसती रहने देना
    जब आवे दिन!

    ~ अज्ञेय {हँसती रहने देना }
