Favour by Tagore translation by ranu
Favour by Rabindranath Tagore
‘Alas sky how could we do without you!
Oh dear sun ,I dream about you ,I cannot be of service to you.’
Dew cried and said___
‘I am unable to tie you down,
oh sun ,I do not have the strength to do so.
Without you my short life is only full of tears.’
‘I give light to this vast earth,
I can still catch the dew drops, and love them.’
the sun came on the dew drops
‘I’ll stay small and fill you up,
I’ll shape your short life with laughter.’
