Theme: Grace

Grace

'Less than the sky
Who else can hold you, O sun!
I can only dream of you
To serve you I cannot dare'
Thus said the dewdrop crying,
'I do not have the strength
To keep you bound in me
So my life without you
Is like a drop of tear.'

'With my bright light
I brighten the entire world
Yet I can get caught and loved
By a drop of dew',
Coming to its heart
The sun told the dewdrop smiling,
'Making myself small
Your little life I shall fill
And build it like a smile.'

Translation of poem 12 from the collection Utsarga, entitled Prasad in Sanchayita, by Rabindranath Tagore. The original is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/13193.
