Children are going to school ...

Summary

This poem is about how every morning children are going to school and how everything happens around them and how beautiful it all looks together and the poet uses some very nice examples to do so.

Stanza by stanza explanation.

Morning light spreads
 over the earth.
Once again, the Sky bows his head in respect,
For children are going to school.
The Sun, after his morning dip in the river
 dressed up in his golden muslin turban
 waits and smiles on one side of the road,
For children are going to school.

In the first stanza, the poet says that every morning light spreads over the earth and the sky bows his head in respect cause all the kids are going to school and he says the sun after its morning dip in the river dresses up in his golden muslin turban by that he means that when the sun rises it looks like it is coming out of the river and that it has bathed and it dressed up and that he is happy and smiling cause the children are going to school.  

Through the green-topped branches,
 Breezes sing their songs of blessings.
Fragrant flowers awaken the sleepy roads with their melodies.
At the corner of the lane,
 the Peepal in his lush deep foliage
 waves his hands
For children are going to school.

In the second stanza, the poet gives us a few more examples about the children going to school and the world around them he says the green branches sing their song while the children go to school and very nice scented flowers awake themselves in the morning because of the singing by the branches at the corner of the lake the peepal waves his hand causes the children r going to school.

Angels of light have set out ...
Every road is a-gleam.
At this hour,
 every particle of the earth
 throbs like a mother’s heart.
Time, sitting on an old roof,
 flies pigeons in the sky.
For children are going to school.

In the third stanza, the poet says that almost every particle on planet earth feels the movement and the hour that the children are going to school every rod there is a gleam of joy and from the stuff from the ground too the pigeons in the sky can feel this when the children are going to school.
