Oh, to live life as one great poem…

It took me 43.5 orbits around the Sun to get it...but better late than never!

    Reading this poem gives same feeling as reading Tagore’s work. Full of humanity & compassion..

    @Yayaver/Himanshu,
    Thanks – I quite agree. Whitman and Tagore are among my favourite poets. The day the Sri Lankan war ended in mid May 2009, I wistfully quoted Tagore’s famous lines that captures our aspirations for a better time so well: https://movingimages.wordpress.com/2009/05/18/sri-lanka-can-our-suspended-dreams-resume-after-the-war/

    These thoughts are beautiful. But alas, there just aren’t enough great poems or poets in this world, just as there are too few great men and women who live their lives as if they were great poems.
