My Songs

In crossing the ocean of time
Who knows when the great deeds
Like heavy loaded boats
Will drown under their own weight!
Instead I gift away my songs -
Composed in light words they are light
On time’s current
Perhaps they will remain afloat.

Translation of a short poem, neither named nor numbered, from the collection Lekhan by Rabindranath Tagore. 
Here is the original –
Bhari kajer bojhai tori kaler parabare
Pari dite giye kakhan dobe apan bhare.
Tar cheye mor ei ka-khana halka kathar gan
Hoyto bhese roibe srote tai kore jai dan.
