A Poetic Tribute to Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore

What best we can do to pay our respects
Than scribble our thoughts in his memory
How can such a person be even a story of the past
For there cannot be another Tagore who can replace

The wisdom of thoughts lie small under his feet
The words of his pen makes us think even this day
Making the life simple and straight
O Master Poet, I have sat down at Thy feet
(These are his words! Echoed back to him)

Dwindling whispers of the divine form
The human endevours could capture in calm
The air around us is filled with unheard music
The calmness of the nature on his thinking
From 'The Hindu' Archives-  Gurudev and Helen Keller
The thoughts of the great poet run behind
The raving and restless unusual mind
Forgive me , O , Lord, if I ever fail
In making the most of your memory trail

O Lord,  we abide by the thoughts of great human
Who lived 150 years ago during your glorious times
There can no parallel to his literature and wisdom
All we can do is pay our respects and prayers in his kingdom
