The  Poetic Art by Rabindranath Tagore

Still wasn’t there sad and happy moments in your life

the quarrel for hope and despair,just like us

O our immortal  poet? Did you not have to face

political meeting, conspiracy, every step of the way?

were you not subjected to the pain of insult,

disregard,deception and unfair verdict,

you witnessed the cruel effects of poverty,

and spent several sleepless nights with a heavy chest.

Still he is above all free and clean

blossomed with beautiful poetry

in the midst of this joyous occasion he has no place

there is no sign of  sadness or adversity.

He struggled with all the misfortunes alone,in the end

bestowed all the great things he achieved to his people.

Deception by R.Tagore, translated by Ranu

Lest you feel I may understand you easily    is this why you  pretend to be what you are not__

outwardly you are a picture of happiness             inside you  are filled with tears.

I understand dear,I understand                            this deception

whatever you want to express                               you refrain from saying.

Fearing that I may grasp you with ease                  you  avoid giving me any clue___

lest I try to include you in a group                             you act indifferent and unfriendly.

I know dear, I know dear                                             your deceptive trick___

the path you would like to take                                   you do not.

You want much more than everyone,                        is this the reason why you leave____

you avoid showing disrespect        is this why you pretend to play and immerse your beggar’s bag?

I fathom,I fathom your                                                                 pretense___

What satisfied everyone                                                                failed to satisfy you.
