Poem Vrukshavalli Amha Soyari in Marathi

वृक्ष वल्ली आम्हां सोयरीं वनचरें ।

पक्षी ही सुस्वरें आळविती ।।

येणें सुखें रुचे एकांताचा वास ।

नाही गुण दोष अंगा येत ।।

आकाश मंडप पृथुवी आसन ।

रमे तेथें मन क्रीडा करी ।।

कंथाकुमंडलु देहउपचारा ।

जाणवितो वारा अवसरु ।।

हरिकथा भोजन परवडी विस्तार ।

करोनि प्रकार सेवूं रुची ।।

तुका म्हणे होय मनासी संवाद ।

आपुला चि वाद आपणांसी ।।
