Chrysanthemum Petals In The Grove - Poem by Raj Arumugam

The girl Child has been looking for the bird in the grove.
But the bird is nowhere to be seen.

There in between stones near the pond are some chrysanthemum petals.
Girl Child knows where these petals come from.
They are from the far north-west.
Someone has been here from the distance. Perhaps that someone has taken the bird.

Girl Child will go there. She will go and bring back the bird.
Girl Child hears someone crying.
Ha Ha boy is there.

“Why are you crying? ” asks girl Child.

“I do not see precious bird. I miss the bird that sings in this grove, ” says Ha Ha boy.

“I am going to the north-west to look for the bird, ” says girl Child.

“Can I come with you? ” asks Ha Ha boy.

“Come, ” says girl Child. “Let us go.”
