What is the kind of pain and ache that the poet feels?
The poet, while leaving her
home, observes her
pallid face. For the poet, the
face of her mother, lost of all vitality and colour, bears
resemblance to a corpse. She realises, with pain, that her mother
has grown old and is nearing her death. Such thoughts make her
recollect her childhood fear and anxiety of losing her mother.
The idea of getting separated from her mother distresses her.
Even her smiles are an expression of her helplessness at the face
of what is inevitable.
