Sarojini Naidu’s Poem ‘Autumn Song’-An Analytical Study

The poem “Autumn Song” by Sarojini Naidu explores the theme of loss and longing in the context of the changing season of autumn. The poetic diction creates vivid imagery and evokes a sense of melancholy.

The poem begins by comparing the sunset to a joyous moment that contrasts with the underlying sorrow. The sunset hangs on a cloud, and the scene is described as a golden storm of glittering sheaves, referring to the falling leaves of autumn. These leaves are portrayed as fair, frail, and fluttering in the wind, creating a visual image of the changing season.

The second stanza introduces a voice that calls to the speaker’s heart in the voice of the wind. The speaker’s heart is described as weary, sad, and alone. The dreams that were once held in the heart, represented metaphorically as the fluttering leaves, have disappeared. The speaker questions why they should stay behind when their dreams have already moved on.
