Though most of the poems written in this book are related to nature and its beauty in the simple encounters of our daily life in our garden, village and countryside, the poet seems to have drifted towards reality of life secrets and philosophy towards the end. The mention of flute (a special music instrument) in many of the poems gives us the feeling of reference to Lord Krishna who is most associated with this musical instrument in Indian mythology. The writer’s inclination towards Indian customs and traditions is well reflected in this book as mannerisms and behavioral patterns were mentioned in his poems.
The best part is that my reading of this book almost one hundred years after it had been written in 1915 is beautifully mentioned in his last poem of this book beginning with the words
“Who are you, reader, reading my poems an hundred years hence?..............................”. A stark and astonishing coincidence, as if the poet was mentioning me in the book.
Again I would recommend the reader should also listen to each of the poems in audio form simultaneously while reading the book in order to have pristine enjoyment.
My rating is 4 out of 5
I am enjoying reading it over and over again.
