A Moments Indulgence

Baby's World

Rabindranath Tagore poems


Waiting

The song I came to sing

remains unsung to this day.

I have spent my days in stringing

and in unstringing my instrument.

 

The time has not come true,

the words have not been rightly set;

only there is the agony

of wishing in my heart…..

Friend

 

Art thou abroad on this stormy night

on thy journey of love, my friend?

The sky groans like one in despair.

 

I have no sleep tonight.

Ever and again I open my door and look out on

the darkness, my friend!

Gitanjali

 

1.

Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure. This frail vessel thou emptiest again and again, and fillest it ever with fresh life.

This little flute of a reed thou hast carried over hills and dales, and hast breathed through its melodies eternally new.

At the immortal touch of thy hands my little heart loses its limits in joy and gives birth to utterance ineffable.

Thy infinite gifts come to me only on these very small hands of mine. Ages pass, and still

Clouds And Waves


Mother, the folk who live up in the clouds call out to me-

'We play from the time we wake till the day ends.

We play with the golden dawn, we play with the silver moon.'

I ask, 'But how am I to get up to you? '

They answer, 'Come to the edge of the earth, lift up your

hands to the sky, and you will be taken up into the clouds.'

'My mother is waiting for me at home, 'I say, 'How can I leave

her and come? '

Then they smile and float away.

But I know a nicer game than that, mother.

I shall be the cloud and you the moon.

I shall cover you with both my hands, and our house-top will

be the blue sky.

Flower

 

Pluck this little flower and take it, delay not! I fear lest it

droop and drop into the dust.

 

I may not find a place in thy garland, but honour it with a touch of

pain from thy hand and pluck it. I fear lest the day end before I am

aware, and the time of offering go by.

 

Though its colour be not deep and its smell be faint, use this flower

in thy service and pluck it while there is time.

Give Me Strength

 

This is my prayer to thee, my lord---strike,

strike at the root of penury in my heart.

Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.

Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.

Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might.

Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles.

And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love.
