The poems selected in this volume give us the essence of the magic of Tagore's poetry. Translated by the poet himself, they recreate a romantic vision of the divine truth. They intricately weave the sacred with the secular. Some are tales in verse with a rare delicacy of feelings. Some are dreamy and symbolic of the poet's mood.
