Stray Birds

By Rabindranath Tagore
4
IT is the tears of the earth that keep her smiles in bloom.
5
THE mighty desert is burning for the love of a blade of grass who shakes her head and laughs and flies away.
6
IF you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars.
7
THE sands in your way beg for your song and your movement, dancing water. Will you carry the burden [記法2] of their lameness?
8
HER wistful face haunts my dreams like the rain at night.
