a kabitika by Rabindranath Tagore

Spring, it is time to tell

The flowers to open.

The leaves are whispering now

With expectation.

The spirit of life is oblivious

Of where earth is, or the sky.

That is why

Flowers seek it in the stars,

Stars seek it in the flowers.

He who knows the truth

Stores it in a treasure-chest proudly.

He who loves the truth

Keeps it inside himself humbly.

Keep, and the load presses down

On your shoulder.

Give, and the whole wide world

Is its porter.
