Travelling is very imported in our life. Majority of people travels daily, most of the travelling concern with earning. People start travelling early in the morning for earning purposes and sometimes travel for just visiting other places.
One thing, which the writers often mentioned in their writings are the “Heavy travelling” here is the example of Shakespeare’s Sonnet “How heavy do I journey on the way” in this Sonnet poet is going to somewhere, away from his beloved and his heart is heavy. His sorrow is increasing gradually with the increasing of distance between him and his beloved.
Same feelings expressed by John Donne “Sweetest love, I do not go”. Like Shakespeare he is also going away from his beloved (Wife) he is also in tragic mode and unwilling traveling away.
Same way Robert Frost writes “The Woods are lovely, dark and deep…. But I have promises to keep”. Again the writer is feeling much attraction in his present stage or present time that’s why he is writing “Woods are lovely dark and deep” means he is not willing to move forward but unwillingly, due to his promise, he has to travel further.
So, it is reality the most of the time, journey becomes heavy when you are travelling away from your loved one people and as you travel further your sadness increases further. Our life itself is a journeys, the most complicated one and all we are in the state of travel. With the ticking of time we are running and our destination is death. Same way we have to cross the gates of death, leaving our loved ones here we will have to move forward. Though, our ancestors are already there, but still we don’t want to go there, leaving our loved ones. But we are bound and have to go there through this “Heavy travelling”
