Sarojini Naidu is a great name in the world of poetry. Her poems could be sung sweet, so she got recognition as nightingale.

Nightingale of India

She had superb brilliance,
She had amazing intelligence.
She got the poetic talent
from parents in heritance.

In her teenage, she could not
get her algebra in line
but wrote ‘The lady of the lake’
poem of thirteen hundred lines.

Of the nineteenth century
and in the last decade,
to the ‘King’s College of London’
she was got admitted.

She got her beloved in England
and to Dr. Naidu gave her heart.
Wanted his company forever;
into marriage tie, opted to convert.

Her love wasn’t confined to one,
she loved her people too.
After studies, returned to motherland
not fearing to bear the woes.

On return to India, Sarojini Naidu
joined the active politics.
She evoked the Indian people
with her words and ethics.

During ‘Quit India’ movement
she stayed in jail for two years.
Courage, confidence, dedication
were foundation of her character.

With her incredible words
she rejuvenated freedom fighters.
The independence of India
became heart and soul of her work.

Many books of magical poetry
got published, written by her.
Her work was admired largely by
poets like Rabindranath Tagore

In the world of the poetry
her amazing words did marvels.
Those could be sung sweet,
got recognition as ‘nightingale’.

Registered in the Indian history,
a great poet and freedom fighter;
And after independence of India
she became first woman Governor,

In the year nineteen forty nine
at her seventy, when she fell ill.
Said: ‘I hope not the eternal sleep’
as the physician gave sleeping pill.
