    Rabindranath Tagore
    “Unending Love

    I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times...
    In life after life, in age after age, forever.
    My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
    That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
    In life after life, in age after age, forever.

    Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it's age old pain,
    It's ancient tale of being apart or together.
    As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
    Clad in the light of a pole-star, piercing the darkness of time.
    You become an image of what is remembered forever.

    You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
    At the heart of time, love of one for another.
    We have played along side millions of lovers,
    Shared in the same shy sweetness of meeting,
    the distressful tears of farewell,
    Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

    Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
    The love of all man's days both past and forever:
    Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
    The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours -
    And the songs of every poet past and forever.”
    Rabindranath Tagore, Selected Poems

  • #26
    Rabindranath Tagore
    “Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
    Where knowledge is free;
    Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
    Where words come out from the depth of truth;
    Where tireless striving stretches its arms toward perfection;
    Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
    Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action -
    Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.”
    Rabindranath Tagore, Gitanjali

  • #27
    “My poem must expurgate my manhood
    unveil the animality of the best of my being,
    reveal both the monster behind the friendly smile
    and the humanity of my most evil deeds;
    I shall undress the species to its pure nudity,
    relegate our vanity to the dustbin of time;
    I shall tell a new story.”
    Eddy Toussaint

    “Take my hand and hold on tight.
    We are going into the land of “Out Grandpa’s Backdoor”.
    You can join all our magic with my animal friends and me.
    Do you think it is great to dream and pretend?
    Create your land of dream and pretend!”
