A Moments Indulgence



A Moments Indulgence :




I ask for a moment's indulgence to sit by thy side. The works

that I have in hand I will finish afterwards.



Away from the sight of thy face my heart knows no rest nor respite,

and my work becomes an endless toil in a shoreless sea of toil.



Today the summer has come at my window with its sighs and murmurs; and

the bees are plying their minstrelsy at the court of the flowering grove.



Now it is time to sit quite, face to face with thee, and to sing

dedication of life in this silent and overflowing leisure.



By
Rabindranath Tagore
