My poet . is it thy delight to see thy creation through my eyes
and to stand at the portals of my ears silently to listen to thine own eternal harmony . .
Thy world is weaving words in my mind and thy joy is adding music to them .
Thou givest thyself to me in love and then feelest thine own entire sweetness in me - The Mysticism of Rabindranath Tagore's 'Gitanjali'
