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;

    Brilliant painting, loved this poem too, thank you for sharing! I think when we are lonely we can so easy connect with self and with the nature. She is lost in herself and wanders through

    I can relate to your poem, it sounds a lot like me. I was young and shy and lost in myself, and kept my heart hidden. But then I found love and life is so much more wonderful now. I enjoyed this poem a lot. (Report) Reply

    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;

    Lovely poem with beautiful lines.
    You have chosen the most appropriate background for the little girl who is lost in the nature
    And she is surrounded by a mesmerizing symphony of the nature.
    Frankly speaking, I felt a bit of jealous
    Inside as if I lost that beautiful girl because of you.
    Don't mind. Thanks for the great poem.
    10 for it. (Report) Reply
