# 5 Hard Times

All that is past: your fears and loves and hopes;
All that is lost: your words and lamentation;
No longer yours a home nor a bed composed of flowers.
For wings are all you have, and the sky's broadening country yard,
And the dawn steeped in darkness, lacking all direction.
Dear bird, my sightless bird,
Not yet, not yet the time to furl your wings! 

 Rabindranath Tagore Poems 5  Hard Times

# 4 You Left Me

You left me and went on your way. 
I thought I should mourn for you
and set your solitary image in my
heart wrought in a golden song. 
But ah, my evil fortune, time is short. 

 Rabindranath Tagore Poems 6 You Left Me

# 3 Waiting 

The song I came to sing remains unsung to this day. 
I have spent my days in stringing and in unstringing my instrument. 

 Rabindranath Tagore Poems 7  Waiting

#2 On the Seashore

 On the seashore of endless worlds, children meet. 
The infinite sky is motionless overhead and the restless water is boisterous. On the seashore of endless worlds, the children meet with shouts and dances.
