Earth's Daughter
by Dr. Sunil Sharma
Bookmark and Share
  Her golden cheeks,
Ripening wheat,
Her
Gentle gait,
Tender grass prancing,
Young full body,
Like the palm trees,
Gracefully moving,
In the scented breeze,
The coarsely-clad
Shy maiden,
Standing alone in the
Rolling green fields,
In the secluded valley,
On this splendid morning,
Tending the field for her family,
That resides merrily,
In a rough dwelling,
In the village outlined,
In the background
In the shivering fog,
Sweeping down the
Serpentine black road,
The big family that lives
By the sweat of their brows

A happy daughter,
Bursting out of the earth,
Like the modern-day Artemis,
Dazzling everyone with
Her purity and innocence,
This shy earth-daughter,
A solitary reaper-figure
Seen earlier by wandering Romantic poet,
Then forgotten again,
And rediscovered outside
An Indian suburb,
By a distant descendant
Of W. Wordsworth.
