A Farmer's Life 3 - Just Twice! Poem by Unnikrishnan Sivasankara Menon

A Farmer's Life 3 - Just Twice!

Rating: 5.0


Just twice!

So he set out to earth to see
The Lord's favourite in person.
He found nothing unusual,
No Aarati, no naamajapam.

The farmer got up in the morning
After bath, poured water at the foot
Of the tulsi, saying "Naarayana! "
And proceeded to his field.

All day in the field he works
Tired as a log, home he returns
Before going to sleep, again utters
folding his hands, "Naarayana".

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

The life of a farmer is strikingly depicted by Rose Marie in her poem, ‘A Farmer's Life'. But the tireless hard work of the hands that feed us billions, is often ignored by everyone, even senseless rulers like those in India. Pity.

A powerful and wonderful depiction of a life of a farmer. A simple man who works hard all day in the field without complaints. And above all, with great faith in the Lord. A very inspiring and fascinating poem so beautifully expressed.
