Poem Title:  Stray Birds 11- 20

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: 
11

SOME unseen fingers, like idle breeze,

are playing upon my heart the music of the ripples.

12

"WHAT language is thine, O sea?"

"The language of eternal question."

"What language is thy answer, O sky?

"The language of eternal silence."

13

LISTEN,

my heart,

to the whispers of the world

with which it makes love to you.

14

THE mystery of creation

is like the darkness of night--

it is great.

Delusions of knowledge are like

the fog of the morning.

15

DO not seat your love upon a precipice because it is high.

16

I SIT at my window this morning

where the world like a passer-by stops for a moment,

nods to me and goes.

17

THESE little thoughts are the rustle of leaves;

they have their whisper of

joy in my mind.

18

WHAT you are you do not see,

what you see is your shadow.


19

MY wishes are fools, they shout across thy songs, my Master.

Let me but listen.

20

I CANNOT choose the best.

The best chooses me.
