Subramanya Bharathi (11 December 1882 - 11 September 1921 / Ettayapuram, Madras Presidency / India)
The Jewel of Stars
Moonlight, the stars and the wind,
By placing them in front
And drinking the honey thereof-
A poetic frenzy seizes us;
That atomic thing called Mind-
We shall let it roam free.
Should one wonder at the bee that sings
While imbedded in a tasty fruit?
Oh, Mind! Go hence to join
The jewel of stars.
