Poem Title:  Stray Birds 1 - 10

Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  Rabindranath Tagore

Poet Biography: 
Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is regarded as the greatest writer in modern Indian literature. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 and two years later he was awarded the knighthood. However he "handed it back" in 1919 as a protest against the Massacre of Amritsar, where British troops killed some 400 Indian demonstrators



Poem: 
Stray birds of summer come to my window to sing and fly away. And yellow leaves of autumn, which have no songs, flutter and fall there with a sigh. 2 O troupeof little vagrants of the world, leave your footprints in my words. 3 theworld puts off its mask of vastness to its lover. It becomes small as one song, as one kiss of the eternal. 4 it is the tears of the earth that keep her smiles in bloom. 5 the mighty desert is burning for the love of a blade of grass who shakes her head and laughs and flies away. 6 If you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars. 7 thesands in your way beg for your song and your movement, dancing water. Will you carry the burden of their lameness? 8 her wistful face haunts my dreams like the rain at night. 9 once we dreamt that we were strangers. We wake up to find that we were dear to each other. 10 sorrow is hushed into peace in my heart like the evening among the silent trees.
