In this poem, “Truth” is depicted by singing birds, “Love” by dazzling stars, and “Peace” is portrayed through flowing streams in the poet’s dream. She continues, “I felt the stars of the spirits of love.” She also hears the wonderful music of the spirits of truth, as one might anticipate in such a magnificent environment. Sarojini Naidu also speaks of a deep craving for truth that can only be satisfied by sipping from the streams of tranquility can observe that the poet uses her emotions to understand abstract thoughts like love, honesty, and harmony. The poem includes both aural and visual images. Throughout the poem, Naidu uses powerful sensory imagery.
