Poem Title:  Stray Birds 41 - 50

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: 
41

THE trees,

like the longings of the earth,

stand a-tiptoe to peep at the heaven.

42

YOU smiled and talked to me of nothing

and I felt that for this I had been waiting long.

43

THE fish in the water is silent,

the animal on the earth is noisy,

the bird in the air is singing,

But Man has in him

the silence of the sea,

the noise of the earth

and the music of the air.

44

THE world rushes on

over the strings of the lingering heart

making the music of sadness.

45

HE has made his weapons his gods.

When his weapons win he is defeated himself.

46

GOD finds himself by creating.

47

SHADOW,

with her veil drawn,

follows Light in secret meekness,

with her silent steps of

love.

48

THE stars

are not afraid to appear like fireflies.

49

I THANK thee that I am none of the wheels of power

but I am one with the living creatures

that are crushed by it.

50

THE mind,

sharp but not broad,

sticks at every point

but does not move.
