ଦୟାନଦୀ ମାନବ ସଭ୍ୟତା ଥିବାଯାଏ
ଗୋଟେ କରୁଣ ପୃଷ୍ଠଭୂମି ଉପରୁ ଶୁଭୁଥିବା
ଦୟାନଦୀରେ ଲୁଚି ରହିଛି
ସମୟକୁ ଅତିକ୍ରମ କରିବାର ଚମ୍ପକ ରାଗ
ରୁକ୍ଷ ଛାତିରେ ଯିଏ ଆଙ୍କିପାରେ
ପ୍ରେମମୟ ପୃଥିବୀର ନିର୍ବାଣୀୟ ନକ୍ସା
କ୍ଷତକୁ ଯାଚେ କ୍ଷମା
ହାହାକାର କୁ ଦିଏ ହଳଦୀ ରଙ୍ଗର ହସ
ଯୁଦ୍ଧକୁ ଯଜ୍ଞର ଚରୁଅନ୍ନ
ଦୟାନଦୀ କେବଳ ବହିଯାଉଥିବା
ନୀଳ ନୀଳ ଜଳାଧାର ନୁହେଁ
ଏ ବହିଯାଉଥିବା ଅମର ଇତିହାସ
ଉଜୁଡି ଯାଉଥିବା ଗୋଟେ ସଭ୍ୟତା ଉପବନର
ପେନ୍ଥାଏ କବିତା ଫୁଲ…………
ମଣିଷତା ପାଇଁ ମୁଠାଏ ଅକ୍ଷରlମୃତ।
