First thing at work today, I open Google and what do I find? This creative logo:
Google tells me it’s THE Tagore’s birthday today. And that just about makes my day.. 🙂 That makes me hungry for some of Tagore’s gems, and what I do is google some more. And that’s how I come up with this brilliant, warm poem SO full of love:
“I ask for a moment’s indulgence to sit by thy side.
The works that I have in hand, I will finish afterwards.
Away from the sight of thy face, my heart knows no rest nor respite,
And my work becomes an endless toil in a shoreless sea of toil.
Today the summer has come at my window with its sighs and murmurs;
And the bees are plying their minstrelsy at the court of the flowering grove.
Now it is time to sit quiet, face to face with thee, and to sing
Dedication of life in this silent and overflowing leisure.”
And this ‘moment’s indulgence’ leaves me FULL of emotions, and CRAVING for more, something that, unfortunately, cannot happen. 😦
**goes away vowing to read more of Tagore pretty soon**
Song on my mind: Mitwaa – KANK
