Wind! My Messenger
Listen! Listen! Oh! Wind so fine!
To the sad legend of mine.
Did you not ever see?
Someone waiting for me.
Oh! Tell me! Tell me! If you please
Where does he lives?
My heart though full of brightness
Yet I live amid silence.
Tell me! Tell me! Oh wind so nice!
Why did you give such a smile?
Did he send a message so sweet?
Or it is just a lovely conceit?
Did you see the glaze in his eyes?
Like that of meteor in the sky.
Bring me! Bring me! Oh wind so grand!
My affectionate from that far-off land,
And there shall be spring once again,
In my mournful heart’s lane.
The poem is all about the wait of a sweet maiden for her beloved. She is imagining how her better half would be like. So she is requesting the cool breeze to send her message to him that she want to meet her at the earliest and do not want to wait any more.
In Today’s world of smart phones and internet, its something unthinkable that young girls making wind their messenger. The poem is written at a place where technology has still not reached and youngsters take interest in nature for expressing every feelings of childhood or teenage.
According to me nothing can be more sweet than this interaction with nature. It makes the soul purified and itself is a meditation.
Sometimes the heart speaks that the old time should come again when there was no technology because the fast revolution of technology have made human away from another human and in general from nature. Life was much more disciplined and worth living in the past.
So, rightly said Ashley Smith “Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”0
