A Country Girl In Love Poem by Anil Kumar Panda

A Country Girl In Love

Rating: 4.7


You don't have to go to the dale
To find her playing with a butterfly;
She would hide from you
As she is young and shy;

You can't see her among trees and bushes
For she does not stay in a place;
Just track down her in fields
On her head she has done a new lace;

She may be on the hill, sitting on stone
And staring at the sky in a pensive mood;
She has been going there to watch
The flitting clouds since her childhood;

Yonder at the edge of dale you can see
Her squatting by the river side playing;
With sands, snails and pebbles
Watching the boats as they go down gliding;

Sometimes I watch her lithely tread
The narrow paths across the desolate field;
Her eyes looking for someone
Where the green crops wild flowers yield;

She is lost in herself and wanders through
Vales, forests, hills and hot desert;
Singing, dancing, laughing and murmuring
No one knows what is in her heart;

Sometimes they think she has met
Someone somewhere in those lonely lands;
Who fell in love with her and promised
To return and would ask her for her hands;

Beautiful imagery. Easy flow of words. You take the reader to a state of utopia. Nature and emotions combined effortlessly and enchantingly.
