Sarojini Naidu's "A Song in Spring" begins like this:
Wild bees that rifle the mango blossom,
Set free awhile from the love-god's string,
Wild birds that sway in the citron branches,
Drunk with the rich, red honey of spring,
In the first half of that stanza, the "wild bees" are "set free" from the "love-god's string".
What is the "love-god's string"? What love god is being referred to here, and what is their string? Why do the wild bees need to be "set free" from this string?
What's this line referring to?
