माझी बाहुली(My Doll) #बडबडगीत #बालकविता

लहान माझी बाहुली,
छोटी तिची सावली.

रंग गोरा गोरापान,
मानेवर शोभतात केस छान.

आवडता रंग निळा,
पण घातलाय फ्रॉक काळा.

मऊ मऊ गाल,
ओठ लाल लाल.

दात जणू मोत्यांची माला,
अन् शरीर हाडांचा सापळा.

मान मोरासारखी लांब,
लग्नासाठी अजून काही वर्षे थांब.

My Doll

Little my doll,
little her shadow.

Color blonde blonde,
nice hair adorns the neck.

favorite color is blue,
but the frock is black.

Soft soft cheeks,
lips red red.

The teeth are like a string of pearls,
the body is a trap of bones.

neck is as long as a peacock,
wait a few more years for marriage.

⭐ My primary education was in Marathi, so I loved doing nursery rhymes in Marathi. For those of you who do not understand Marathi, I have translated it into English but it did not become a rhyme in English.

Thank you for reading.

Stay Blessed! 💞

  1. It’s beautiful!✨️
    I haven’t read marathi in a long time, and this poem just made me nostalgic. I remember listening to jigletoon which had nursery rhymes like ‘asava sudara chocolate cha bangla’ and other. 😊

      1. It was my pleasure reading this.
        ‘Asava sundar chicolate cha bangla’ and ‘chandarani’ were the rhymes that my mom used to play whenever I refused to eat 😂.
        I shared this poem with my mom, she also got nostalgic.

  2. Beautiful work Jane. The repetition was exceptionally done, and there are deeper ripples beneath these lines. Perfect for this month’s symphony.
