do birds sing in my

Comments on this Poem

Comment Bijay babu, your references to Wordsworth and Jayanta elevates my spirits. That said, may I draw your attention that the birds are ours and speak our language, too, sing our tunes and dance with our staeps... a lovely moment! Thank you.

Comment The lines remind us of Wordsworth's Lines Written In Early Spring when he hears the birds chirping, dancing, hopping and playing around him sitting in a reclined state in a bower. But here, though the house sparrows have deserted and dwindled, the poet Kumarendra hears them in the morning reminding him of the mother tongue. What is language? Sounds.Speeches as sounds, symbols and signs; accents, stresses and rhythms. Literature as written words. let us catch the nuances and idiosyncrasies of the oral speech. Let us think of the Big Bang theory, the creation of the universe and the first sunrise. How did the sound break upon? Jayanta Mahapatra's Dawn at Puri.
