Autumn Song – Sarojini Naidu Poetry


Autumn Song – Sarojini Naidu Poetry:

The Poet's Love-Song - Sarojini NaiduThis is a poem written by the Indian Poet Sarojini Naidu who was an Indian independence activist and poet.

Like a joy on the heart of a sorrow,
   The sunset hangs on a cloud;
A golden storm of glittering sheaves,
Of fair and frail and fluttering leaves,
   The wild wind blows in a cloud.

Hark to a voice that is calling
   To my heart in the voice of the wind:
My heart is weary and sad and alone,
For its dreams like the fluttering leaves have gone,
   And why should I stay behind?
