Poem Title:  Stray Birds 51 - 60

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: 
51 Your idol is shattered in the dust to prove that God's dust is greater than your idol. 52 Man does not reveal himself in his history, he struggles up through it. 53 While the glass lamp rebukes the earthen for calling it cousin, the moon rises, and the glass lamp, with a bland smile, calls her, "My dear, dear sister." 54 Like the meeting of the seagulls and the waves we meet and come near. The seagulls fly off, the waves roll away and we depart. 55 My day is done, and I am like a boat drawn on the beach, listening to the dance-music of t he tide in the evening. 56 Life is given to us; we earn it by giving it. 57 We come nearest to the great when we are great in humility. 58 The sparrow is sorry for the peacock at the burden of its tail. 59 Never be afraid of the moments-- thus sings the voice of the everlasting. 60 The hurricane seeks the shortest road by the no-road, and suddenly ends its search in the nowhere.
