A Love poem by Rabindranath Tagore, “Fireflies,” one I really enjoy reading. Rabindranath Tagore was the first one non-European Nobel laureate by earning the 1913 Prize in Literature. Love poems by Rabindranath Tagore are spiritual and mercurial which mesmerize lovers. Optimism, joy, hope and sorrow in love are best described in love poems by Rabindranath Tagore.
Like any other beauty of God, love can’t be described in words. Through love poems by Rabindranath Tagore, lovers can understand the divine feeling of love. Rabindranath Tagore has poured the light of hope on love through all of his poems.
The world knows that the few are more than the many.
Let not my love be a burden on you, my friend, know that it pays itself.
Dawn plays her lute before the gate of darkness, and is content to vanish when the sun comes out.
Beauty is truth’s smile when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.
The dew-drop knows the sun
only within its own tiny orb.
Forlorn thoughts from the forsaken hives of all ages,
swarming in the air, hum round my heart
and seek my voice.
The desert is imprisoned in the wall
of its unbounded barrenness.
In the thrill of little leaves
I see the air’s invisible dance,
and in their glimmering
the secret heart-beats of the sky.
You are like a flowering tree,
amazed when I praise you for your gifts.
The earth’s sacrifical fire
flames up in her trees,
scattering sparks in flowers.
Forests, the clouds of earth,
hold up to the sky their silence,
and clouds from above come down
in resonant showers.
The world speaks to me in pictures,
my soul answers in music.
The sky tells its beads all night
on the countless stars
in memory of the sun.
