Chand Chakor Preet Hai

੪ : ਗੁਰ ਸਿਖ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ
Love of a Gursikh

(Vaar 27, Pauri 4 of 23 – Bhai Gurdas Ji)

ਚੰਦ ਚਕੋਰ ਪਰੀਤ ਹੈ ਲਾਇ ਤਾਰ ਨਿਹਾਲੇ।
Red-legged partridge (chakor) loves moon
and hence stares at it without even losing its glance.

ਚਕਵੀ ਸੂਰਜ ਹੇਤ ਹੈ ਮਿਲਿ ਹੋਨਿ ਸੁਖਾਲੇ।
Ruddy sheldrake (chakavi) loves sun,
and in sunlight,
meeting its beloved feels elated.

ਨੇਹੁ ਕਵਲ ਜਲ ਜਾਣੀਐ ਖਿੜਿ ਮੁਹ ਵੇਖਾਲੇ।
Lotus loves water and
shows the water its blossomed face.

ਮੋਰ ਬਬੀਹੇ ਬੋਲਦੇ ਵੇਖਿ ਬਦਲ ਕਾਲੇ।
Rain birds and peacocks also
shriek when they see the clouds.

ਨਾਰਿ ਭਤਾਰ ਪਿਆਰੁ ਹੈ ਮਾਂ ਪੁਤ ਸਮ੍ਹਾਲੇ।
Wife loves her husband and
mother takes care of the son.

ਪੀਰ ਮੁਰੀਦਾ ਪਿਰਹੜੀ ਓਹੁ ਨਿਬਹੈ ਨਾਲੇ ॥੪॥
Similarly the Sikh loves Guru and
this love accompanies him to the end.
