Autumn Song Poem by Sarojini Naidu

Autumn Song

Rating: 3.4


Like a joy on the heart of a sorrow,
   The sunset hangs on a cloud;
A golden storm of glittering sheaves,
Of fair and frail and fluttering leaves,
   The wild wind blows in a cloud.

Hark to a voice that is calling
   To my heart in the voice of the wind:
My heart is weary and sad and alone,
For its dreams like the fluttering leaves have gone,
   And why should I stay behind?

here is Naidu's beautiful poem, translated into my language - Italian: 'Canto d'Autunno' Come una gioia al centro di un dolore, Il tramonto è appeso ad una nuvola; Una tempesta dorata di scintillanti covoni, Di simili, fragili, svolazzanti foglie, Che il vento selvaggio fonde in una nuvola. Ascolto la voce che grida Al mio cuore con la voce del vento: Il mio cuore è stanco e triste e solo, Perchè i suoi sogni si sono dispersi come le foglie svolazzanti, Perché io dovrei restare? ('Autumn Song' by Sarojini Naidu)

Today I find Rabindranath Tagore ranked a No.1 in the best poet list on PoemHunter, above Wordsworth and Shakespeare. I endorse this.
