Excerpt from book: My song has put off her adornments. She has no pride of dress and decoration. Ornaments would mar our union; they would come between thee and me; their jingling would drown thy whispers. My poet's vanity dies in shame before thy sight. O master poet, I have sat down at thy feet. Only let me make my life simple and straight, like a flute of reed for thee to fill with music. The child who is decked with prince's robes and who has jewelled chains round his neck loses all pleasure in his play; his dress hampers him at every step. In fear that it may be frayed, orstained with dust he keeps himself from the world, and is afraid even to move. Mother, it is no gain, thy bondage of finery, if it keep one shut off from the healthful dust of the earth, if it rob one of the right of entrance to the great fair of common human life. O Fool, to try to carry thyself upon thy own shoulders 0 beggar, to come to beg at thy own door Leave all thy burdens on his hands who can bear all, and never look behind in regret. Thy desire at once puts out the light from the lamp it touches with its breath. It is unholy?take not thy gifts through its unclean hands. Accept only what is offered by sacred love. Hebe is thy footstool and there rest thy feet where live the poorest, and lowliest, and lost. When I try to bow to thee, my obeisance cannot reach down to the depth where thy feet rest among the poorest, and lowliest, and lost. Pride can never approach to where thou walkest in the clothes of the humble among the poorest, and lowliest, and lost. My heart can never find its way to where thou keepest company with the companionless among the poorest, the lowliest, and the lost. Leave this chanting and singing and telling of beads Whom dost thou worship in this lonely dark c...

Gitanjali is a sweet collection of poems and songs from Nobel Prize winning poet Rabindranath Tagore. He wrote poetry in Bengali, translated "Gitanjali" himself into English. His poetry is unique and the best of all. These are songs that touch on love, faith and truth. The poem celebrates the feelings of joy, happiness, love for God and love for humanity and blessings. Gitanjali is a masterpiece which I would like to see read more often. Undoubtedly, Rabindranath Tagore is my favorite and the best poet till date.
