A Moment's IndulgenceYesterday I posted one of my favorite poems on my facebook page. A Moments Indulgence by Rabindranath Tagore contains one of the most beautiful lines of poetry every written: "Away from the sight of thy face my heart knows no rest nor respite". I was thrilled to find this group on EP.
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.
