Review on “a Love Song From the North” by Sarojini Naidu

Book Review   by:akso6o175     Original Author: Andy Kester Sawian
ª
 
‘Papeeha’ is a home name addressed to a girl affectionately. Her lover sang the song by opening the lyrics to tell him no more of her love for him. Would she recall to his heart all the dreams of delight that are gone? When swift to his side came the feet of his lover. With stars of the dusk; the darker stage of twilight; and the dawn? The first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise. He sees the soft wings of the clouds on the river. Jewelled; a precious stone, especially a single crystal or a cut and polished piece of a lustrous or translucent mineral: in this context the raindrops shine like jewels when they fall from the sky in the day time; with raindrops the mango-leaves quiver; shake or tremble with a slight rapid motion: cause to make a slight rapid motion. The tender boughs; a main branch of a tree; flower on the plain.....; in this context almost all the branches of the seasonal trees are projecting small flowering buds on their branches symbolizing the onset of spring which is the season of hope. But what is their beauty to him? They are only the beauty of blossom and shower which is incomparable to the love he has for her. The beauty of nature cannot draw her close to his presence.
It maybe that she is already dead and gone or she must have abandoned him and left him heartbroken, when he says that nature’s beauty cannot bring her back to him again, “That brings not my lover again?” He pleads with her not to speak of her love for him anymore though in faded memory she would revive in his heart. As of now he will continue to grief for the joy that is gone. He hears the bright peacock in glimmering; shine faintly with a wavering light: a faint or wavering light: a faint sign of a feeling or quality, especially a desirable one; woodlands cry to its mate in the dawn. He hears the black koel's; an all-black or dark Asian and Australasian cuckoo; slow, tremulous wooing; shaking or quivering slightly: timid; nervous; try to gain the love of (a female). So sweet in the gardens the calling and cooing; (of a pigeon or dove) make a soft murmuring sound; of passionate bulbul; a tropical African and Asian songbird, typically with drab plumage. [Family Pycnonotidae: numerous species.]; and dove....But what is their music to him? They are just songs of their laughter and love. To him, he only feels forsaken of love.
