The Solitary Lass


"Behold her, single in the field,
Yon solitary Highland Lass!
Reaping and singing by herself;
Stop here, or gently pass!"


(The Solitary Reaper, W.Wordsworth)

The lines I learned by-heart years back, in school..
And it came again to my lips today
When I saw her in the field, working there all alone...

    നടവരമ്പോര്‍മ്മയില്‍ കണ്ടു
    വെയിലേറ്റു വാടുന്ന ചെറുമികള്‍ തേടുന്ന
    തണലും തണുപ്പും ഞാന്‍ കണ്ടു..."

    അന്യമായിക്കൊണ്ടിരിയ്ക്കുന്ന ഗ്രാമീണതയുടെ നേര്‍ക്കാഴ്ച!
