Sarojini Naidu  A Love Song from the North  An Analytical Study

Sarojini Naidu’s Poem “A Love Song from the North”-An Analytical Study

The speaker in the poem addresses a bird called “papeeha” and asks it not to talk about love anymore because it reminds them of the happiness they once had with their lover. The speaker remembers the past when their lover used to come to them swiftly, bringing joy like the stars of the night and the morning. But now, the beauty of nature, like clouds on the river, raindrops on mango leaves, and flowering boughs, doesn’t matter to the speaker because it cannot bring their lover back.

The speaker then tells the bird not to revive the grief in their heart for the joy that is gone. They hear the sounds of nature around them—the bright peacock calling its mate, the black koel’s wooing, and the songs of passionate birds like the bulbul and dove in the gardens. However, none of this music and the love of other birds matters to the speaker because they feel abandoned and forsaken by their own lover.

So, the main theme of the poem ‘A Love Song from the North‘ is the longing for lost love. The poet uses the imagery of nature and birds to express the speaker’s emotions and convey the depth of their sorrow. The poetic diction, or the choice of words, is simple and easy to understand, making it suitable for average readers. The poem shows how love can bring immense joy but also deep sadness when it is lost. 0 0 0
