Where Shadow Chases Light, Poem by Bissho Kobi, Rabindranath Tagore, 1913, British India.

Gitanjali, The song of Flowers, by Nobel  Laureate, Poet Rabindranath Tagore.






This is my delight, thus to wait and watch by the wayside where shadow chases light and the rain comes in the wake of the summer. Messengers with tidings from unknown skies greet me as they race along with the road. My heart is glad within, and the breath of the passing breeze is fragrant. From dawn till dusk I sit here before my door, and I know that all of a sudden the happy moment will arrive when I shall see. In the meanwhile, I smile and I sing by myself, so that the air is fulfilled with the perfume of promise.
