    I found Tagore's comparisons between the heave and the ocean to his mother, it was truly clever. His insight is inspirational. I've literally been saying his name over and over inside my head the whole time I was at work; I was bored and was thinking of how cool of a poet name he has. (Report) Reply

    But I know a better game than that.
    I will be the waves and you will be a strange shore.
    I shall roll on and on and on, and break upon your lap with
    And no one in the world will know where we both are.
