Train Through The Crop Fields - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Passing through the crop fields,
Train is running ahead to capital,
For gaining capital of life again,
Man and woman are working hard,
Seeing the diverse reflections
Under and above the water of ponds,
Very attentively and carefully
Pretty wild flowers have bloomed,
Driver of train has fasted joy.

Red flowers twisting towards buds,
These are gossiping with shrubs
In the pond shore with white buds,
Paddy is harvested in this mid-day,
straws are gathered in winter field,
Under an umbrella tree and bushes,
Few shrubs discuss about beauty.

Between pond, fields and far hills,
With power head the deep blue train,
It is running at the speed of wind,
Passengers are watching to both sides,
Hard work has given fruit to farmers,
"Train them through the crop fields,
To regain knowledge of cultivation,
The master clear sky is telling to all,
Winter is singing for seasonal journey,
Train is training to achieve life's goal.

    What a wonderful train journey if we could pass through the crop fiellds.
    We could see the beauty of growing crops and even people attending the fields.

    Another astounding poem about trains. Good play on the word 'train',
    and personification of the flowers gossiping with shrubs, and a few shrubs
    discussing beauty. There is striking beauty in your photo.

    fantastic writing-
    ///
    O' Train
    You go into the solid lane of heart-
    by the crops field,
    by the canal,
    by the channel,
    by the river or on the river.......
    O' Train
    You carry him/her, them, us and everyone,
    you carry everything……...
