Tagore Song (#78) Wanting To Express Thy Feeling With Words - Poem by Tushar Ray

(jara kothadiye tomar kotha bole)

Those wishing to express Thy feeling
Using their verbal edifice
They only make a barricade of thought
Using layers after layer of words

The verbal explanation of one
Is not understood by the other, as
More the words are used to explain
Harder it becomes to understand

Those who leave the words behind
Only express by musical vibration
They are in concord with others
From very near to very far
Unwilling to be bothered
Whether they understand or not
And their pain takes them to touch Thy feet
