About Grief by Tagore

Say not in grief that she is no more
but say in thankfulness that she was.
A death is not the extinguishing of a light,
but the putting out of the
lamp because the dawn has come.

~ Rabindranath Tagore

For Anne Gregory by W B Yeats

This poem is a conversation between a young man and a young woman. What are they arguing about?

“Never shall a young man,
Thrown into despair
By those great honey-coloured
Ramparts at your ear,
Love you for yourself alone
And not your yellow hair.”

“But I can get a hair-dye
And set such colour there,
Brown, or black, or carrot,
That young men in despair
May love me for myself alone
And not my yellow hair.”

“I heard an old religious man
But yesternight declare
That he had found a text to prove
That only God, my dear,
Could love you for yourself alone
And not your yellow hair.”

~ WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was an Irish nationalist. He was educated in London and Dublin. He was interested in folklore and mythology. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.

Poetry : Blissful Friendship

Whether you are on top of hill or near a lakeside

Whether it’s morning or noon

Whether you are hungry or stomach full

Whether it’s highway or mudway

Whether you are on pillion seat or on driver seat

Whether you are tired or excited

Whether there bumps in the way or a smooth road

Whether you are fresh or dull

When you don’t have any good pics of the trip

When you don’t get to see any great place

When nothing of the above matters but you know you had a good time

When you have someone who pushes you to take one more step

It’s blissful to have someone in your life with whom it doesn’t matter where you are, how you are, what you are doing – only the company matters.

To True Friendship

Poetry : Love Poems from Taj Mahal 3

Love completes you !

Love is not subjective as it is projected in modern life.
Love is not complicated as seen in Facebook status.
Because it is not a status
It is a feeling underneath
Your chest
Which helps you to realise
That the body you own
The lungs that purify your blood
The heart that pumps the blood
Become meaningful
When you find your love
The Love pumps oxygen into your life
The Love purifies your journey of life
The Love completes you.
