Bharati Nayak


A Music Is Made - Poem by Bharati Nayak

What and how
Can I define
And give a meaning
When I look
To the soft sunshine
That illuminates
My inner and outer world
How can I give a name
when music is made
When sweet breeze
Caresses the green branch
Or when
Flowers dance
In the rhythm
And the birds chirp

In which note
This music is played
When in silence
It is heard
From thousand miles apart.
In which name
I shall call the cloud
That wanders into the desert
Drizzles for a traveller wearied.

What name shall I call the drizzle
That frees the music
Held captive in the dungeon
And give a chance to play again
In the freedom
Where sunshine,
moon beam
Birds and butterflies
Even the tiniest life dance.

Topic(s) of this poem: love, music, nature

    How can I give a name
    when music is made
    When sweet breeze
    Caresses the green branch
    Or when
    Flowers dance
    In the rhythm
    And the birds chirp.......so touching and impressive. It is really a beautiful poem on nature, music and love amazingly shared. This poem has special attraction that I made second visit.

    Dingy life is refreshed when we hear music which is omnipresent…we cannot call it by a name……‘How can I give a name when music is made when sweet breeze caresses the green branch’…….Then, in which note this music is played when in silence it is heard from thousand miles apart’ (Part II) (Report)Reply

    Robert Frost relates Music to the Blues, to the deep dark woods, and the soft delicate voices of chirping birds forming greater part of nature’s music! The fact is greatly reflected in Wordsworth’s poetry! We absolutely get thrilled, exhilarated when our ear drums explore any sort of music made anywhere. Absolutely we are in harmony with what music provides us comforting our soul. (Part I) (Report)Reply
