A Country Girl In Love - Poem by Tiku akp

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;

    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;
    - - -beautiful lines remind me Wordsworth's Solitary Reaper!

    Very picturesque and visual- you can almost see this girl playing with butterflies and staring pensively at the sky in the wild meadow! Very transportive to another place far away from the urban aggression. (Report)Reply

    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; ...

    She is meandering in fantasy, not because she is naive but
    due to love.Excellent piece AKP
