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 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

    this is lovely, can't help matching this country girl to myself in those old days. A nature's child whose heart is filled with love of all things surround her and things from another loving heart. (Report) Reply
