I love Tagore. I mean, when I was fifteen, I wanted to be reborn a Bengali, or just learn the language so I could read all his works in the original language.
 
Today morning, I was reading The Gardener, and a few verses just made me sigh. You will too, once you read it.
 
Lest I should know you too easily, you play with me.
You blind me with flashes of laughter to hide your tears.
I know, I know your art.
You never say the word you would.
 
Lest I should not prize you, you elude me in a thousand ways.
Lest I should confuse you with the crowd, you stand aside.
I know, I know your art,
You never walk the path you would.
 
Your claim is more than that of others, that is why you are
silent.
With playful carelessness you avoid my gifts.
I know, I know your art,
You never will take what you would.
 
****
 
I long to speak the deepest words I have to say to you; but I
dare not, for fear you should laugh.
That is why I laugh at myself and shatter my secret in jest.
I make light of my pain, afraid you should do so.
 
I long to tell you the truest words I have to say to you; but I
dare not, being afraid that you would not believe them.
That is why I disguise them in untruth, saying the contrary of
what I mean.
I make my pain appear absurd, afraid that you should do so.
 
I long to use the most precious words I have for you; but I dare
not, fearing I should not be paid with like value.
That is why I gave you hard names and boast of my callous
strength.
I hurt you, for fear you should never know any pain.
 
I long to sit silent by you; but I dare not lest my heart come
out at my lips.
That is why I prattle and chatter lightly and hide my heart
behind words.
I rudely handle my pain, for fear you should do so.
 
 
Now confess,  it  WAS Dutta that came to mind when you were reading these lines, na!?!  For me, it was him, from the first line.
 
*SIGH* Blushing
 
This man is giving me serious heartache!

Yes Lizzy. Very true. No other image crosses your mind than Dutta's. The lines fit Dutta and Dutta only.

I will second that..I feel priviledged to be born as bengali..a man of such diverse talents-Rabindranath Thakur known as Gurudev....there are many songs and poems which touch your heart and soul. they make you want to be a better person.
 
Lovely post Lizzy..thank you for reminding me those poignant words again.
