The Poet(r.d. ashby).jpg
  (In Memory of Tagore)

The poet of a thousand poems
he felt he had not written a single
line - which explained his next poem,
which blossomed like a rose, then

fell like the rest into the golden boat,
to leave him staring into the sunset,
the wordless great expanse of purple sky,
where silence hung like a crystal drop

reflecting the million fragments
of the world, tantalizing his powers,
until he realized it was envy of the infinite,
futile, that in his words imposed a limit.
