Naidu, Sarojini Indian poet, lecturer, and politician.
With her poems, she tries to educate the eradication of some sickly thoughts that are bred India. Each stage represents childhood, youth and old age, respectively. Or more appropriately, birth, living life, and death appear to have been signified as the three stages of the cycle of life.
Nonetheless, we find that the poem has been structured in a question-answer pattern. The poet asks three questions to the weavers and they answer accordingly, to put it simply.
However, in the questions and answers lies the temperament of the poem. In the first stanza, the poet enquires about the weavers, weaving while the rays of sunlight hit the earth. She is inquisitive since they are weaving, or working when it is too early to even be awake. Thus, her inquiry seems to be obvious.
The start of a new day has been used as a metaphor for the start of a new life. The halcyon bird a mythical bird, could be kind of Kingfisher as well has been used as a simile, to give us a hint about the majestic royalty that is symbolic of the color blue.
Majestic and royal because a child is the apparition of God himself. Thereby, one can easily guess that the occasion of being born on the earth is being celebrated in the first stanza of the poem, signifying the arrival of new hope to the world.
The second stanza of the poem is in every manner more significant since it deals with that part of our life in which we are most active, each as if capable of conquering the world. Thus like the feathers of a peacock, the veil has to be engulfed with the color purple and green.
Purple may signify the extravagance of a kingly kind, showy and bedazzling. But the color green could stand for Nature and also for youth, prosperity, and beauty. For youth lies in the epitome of our life, when all can be done, dreams can be dreamt and realize. Being devoid of gloom, we transcend ourselves to the beauty that life itself is.

Thus, purple and green refer to the two parts of youth. The poet first mentions purple because, it stands for the early phase of youth, when one is devoid of many responsibilities and, is dressed in their best attire which may also try to give the idea that it is the time when they are their best selves.
Therefore, this stanza for the mirth, and the free and vibrant nature of youth which afterward become more grounded and joyous has been hinted in this stanza.
The last stanza of the poem occupies our minds, the most and leaves us brooding over the ultimate end of each of our lives.
In the third stanza, the poet asks the weavers regarding why are they weaving at the dead of night, when nature is still and its very cold and chilly. This could indicate that they are, in showing respect to the departed, are going about their work in resolute, silence and solemnity.
He is as light as a feather. Thus, the last stanza emphasizes on the last stage of a man, that is old age and eventual death. Throughout the poem, we find metaphors and similes aided to the becoming of the poet for what it is.
Though there is one thing that is most debatable and interesting, that is the identity of the weavers. It is noteworthy that, according to Greek mythology, the Fates were personified as three very old women who spin the threads of human destiny.
Thus, is it not very clear that each stanza represents one the Fate women and is deliberately arranged in the same order, in terms of birth, life, and death, as the Fate women are assigned their tasks. Clotho spins the thread of human fate, thus, deciding on when the being is to be born and is born.
Similarly, Lachesis dispenses it, deciding on their longevity and the period of their youth, lastly, the unmovable Atropos, who cuts the thread of life, that is bestowed death on the being, and that cannot be altercated.
