Closed Path, A Rendering Of A Rabindra Nath Tagore's Poem



I thought my journey was over.
No further road was left to follow.
Exhausted I was. No strength, no
provisions were left. I thought my time
to slip into silence had finally come.

But I know my God sees no end of me.
When the old music dies
new melodies spring forth my heart.
And when the travelled path is lost
stunning vistas of a new country are revealed.


****

The original:

I thought that my voyage had come to its end
at the last limit of my power, - -that the path before me was closed,
that provisions were exhausted
and the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity.

But I find that thy will knows no end in me.
And when old words die out on the tongue,
new melodies break forth from the heart;
and where the old tracks are lost,
new country is revealed with its wonders.

-Rabindranath Tagore
