The Stupid Daughter of Lord Ullin


“Lord Ullin’s Daughter”, I was in 8th standard when I read this poetry. The poem fascinated me since the time I read it for the first time and has inspired me to write something like that. I imagined the picturesque of how Lord Ullin’s Daughter was trapped in between sea on a ship with chief of Army. Among the storm and lighting.

She must be happy that she is running away with the person she loved. But I didn’t like the concept. You are lured by the bait. I have been enticed by the shiny things of life, like a mosquito that gets attracted by light and loses its life.

The poetry made me imagine the loss the Lord Ullin and his daughter faced. Loss to life is bigger than any other thing.

She must have repented for her decision. Dying in midst of sea with lame reason is just too Juvenile. Who does that?

I’ll meet the raging of the skies, but not an angry father.

Running behind people you love is not a thing of joy. Stupid are those. And every time I read this poetry I find myself at same position. Running after people, making stupid mistakes and then realizing the shit I commit every time.

The worst part is no one stopped her from running away. Sacrifices are never meant to be made. Being mean is the new statement.

The questions in my mind with this poetry are very much similar to the question I used to expect in examination as a poetry prose. But they were answered while mine are still wandering.
