Raksha Bandhan Poem and Message – Sarojini Naidu



Beloved I offer to you
In tender allegiance anew
A bracelet of floss, let me twist
And violet, to girdle your wrist.

Accept this bright gage from my hand
Let you heart its sweet speech understand
The ancient high symbol and end
In wrought on each gold-threaded strand,
The fealty of friend unto friend.

A garland how frail of design,
Our spirits to clasp and entwine
In devotion unstained and unbroken,
How slender a circle and sign
Of secret deep pledges unspoken!

Sarojini Naidu – Poem - The Feather of Dawn
