re: #201 Kreuzueber Halbmond
Thanks for those. In return, have some Rabindranath Tagore epigrams:
He who wishes to do good knocks at the gate
He who loves finds the gate open.
Its store of snow is the hill’s own burden
its outpouring of streams is borne by all the world.
I am able to love my God
because he gives me freedom to deny him.
“Let me light my lamp”, says the star, “And never debate if it
will help to remove the darkness.”
Many have sought the meaning of Thy Truth
And they are great;
I have heard the music of Thy Play
And I am glad.
While God waits for His temple to be built of love,
men bring stones.
When death comes and whispers to me,
“Thy days are ended,”
let me say to him, “I have lived in love
and not in mere time.”
He will ask, “Will thy songs remain?”
I shall say, “I know not, but this I know
that often when I sang I found my eternity.”
