Fireflies

Selected Fireflies by Rabindranath Tagor
I touch God in my song
as the hill touches the far-away sea
with its waterfall.

~

The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough.

~

Let my love, like sunlight, surround you
and give you illumined freedom.

~

Love remains a secret even when spoken,
for only a lover truly knows that he is loved.

~

Emancipation from the bondage of the soil
is no freedom for the tree.

~

In love I pay my endless debt to thee
for what thou art.

- Rabindranath Tagore
