I understand why there is such a play of colors on clouds, on water,
and why flowers are painted in tints

    How I wish to have been that child. To have been close to Tagore in Bengal in that time of his beautiful and bountiful writing. Priceless poem. Quite extraordinary. (Report) Reply

    When I kiss your face to make you smile, my darling,
    I surely understand what pleasure streams from the sky in morning light,
    and what delight that is that is which the summer breeze brings to my body
    - -when I kiss you to make you smile. (Report) Reply

    What a beautiful poem! I love how Tagore compares the love of a mother to a child with the love our Creator has for us, drawing parallels to the mothers gifts to the child and God's gifts to us. (Report) Reply

    A child is the centre of mother's world. Most wonderful expressions of a child's innocence and mother's love for her child. (Report) Reply
