Stray Birds by Rabindranath Tagore posted by ranu

1

Her wistful face haunts my dreams

like the rain at night.

2

Once we dreamt we were

strangers.

We wake up to find that we were

dear to each other.

3

Sorrow is hushed into peace in

my heart like the evening among the

silent trees.

4

Some unseen fingers, like an idle

breeze, are playing upon my heart the

music of the ripples.

5

“What language is thine,O sea?”

“The language of eternal question.”

“What language is thy answer,O sky?”

“The language of eternal silence.”

6

The mystery of creation is like the

darkness of night___it is great.

Delusions of knowledge are like the fog

of the morning.

7

Do not seat your love upon a

precipice because it is high.
