A Country Girl In Love - Poem by Tiku akp

You don’t have to go to the dale
To find her playing with a butterfly;
She would hide from you
As she is young and shy;

You can’t see her among trees and bushes
For she does not stay in a place;
Just track down her in fields
On her head she has done a new lace;

She may be on the hill, sitting on stone
And staring at the sky in a pensive mood;
She has been going there to watch
The flitting clouds since her childhood;

Yonder at the edge of dale you can see
Her squatting by the river side playing;
With sands, snails and pebbles
Watching the boats as they go down gliding;

Sometimes I watch her lithely tread
The narrow paths across the desolate field;
Her eyes looking for someone
Where the green crops wild flowers yield;

She is lost in herself and wanders through
Vales, forests, hills and hot desert;
Singing, dancing, laughing and murmuring
No one knows what is in her heart;

Sometimes they think she has met
Someone somewhere in those lonely lands;
Who fell in love with her and promised
To return and would ask her for her hands;

    I have been wanting to read your poems. After a search, when i was almost giving up, i found your poems.
    Was quite surprised and delighted to know you have written almost 300 poems. That's great! ! Congratulations!
    'A country girl in love' - the hopes and aspirations of the young girl wandering along the hills, valleys, forests, yet dancing and singing in tune with nature is beautifully brought out. Really enjoyed the poem, Tiku! (Report) Reply

    Men tend to romanticize life in a village; but things are not so simple. Their need to fulfill basic needs sometimes drives them away from their homes into crowded cities. But it's a lovely poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
