Poem for July 4th

July 4, 2011

I thought that my voyage had come to its end

at the last limit of my power, –that the path before me was closed,

that provisions were exhausted

and the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity.

But I find that thy will knows no end in me.

And when old words die out on the tongue,

new melodies break forth from the heart;

and where the old tracks are lost,

new country is revealed from its wonders.

Rabindranath Tagore
