    Westerners reading Tagore's poems here in English translation will not fully understand his true poetic genius. His poems in original Bengali are a musical and aesthetic delight. Tagore was not only a poet, but also a painter and singer. He used to sing his poems in his melodious voice. His words emanate from the very depth of human heart and speak universal truth. Here is a poet of utter compassion, in whose compositions you will never find a tinge of narrowness or bigotry. Like the legendary Soma and Homa birds of the Vedas, his consciousness remained always aloft.

Best Poem of Rabindranath Tagore

Where The Mind Is Without Fear

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake

Read the full of Where The Mind Is Without Fear

The Last Bargain

"Come and hire me," I cried, while in the morning I was walking on the stone-paved road.
Sword in hand, the King came in his chariot.
He held my hand and said, "I will hire you with my power."
But his power counted for nought, and he went away in his chariot.

In the heat of the midday the houses stood with shut doors.
I wandered along the crooked lane.
An old man came out with his bag of gold.
He pondered and said, "I will hire you with my money."
