Sarojini Naidu's poem A Rajput Love Song has the stanza:
Haste, O wild-bee hours, to the gardens of the sunset!
Fly, wild-parrot day, to the orchards of the west!
Come, O tender night, with your sweet,
And bring me my Beloved to the shelter of my breast!
And later, another very similar stanza:
Haste, O wild-deer hours, to the meadows of the sunset!
Fly, wild-stallion day, to the pastures of the west!
Come, O tranquil night, with your soft,
And bear me to the fragrance of my Beloved's breast!
My question is, what do the parts in bold allude to? Why do the hours belong to the wild deer and bees? Why do the days belong to the wild stallions and parrots? The repetition is obviously intended; what is the effect she's trying to achieve?
