The Road Stoops To Feet. Dedicated To Swami Vivekananda


The Road Stoops To Feet. Dedicated To Swami Vivekananda

Travelled and travelled the pilgrim,
With denied time steps,
Through hunger, thirst and foot-sore,
Till ahead long is the destination,
And he knew not how many miles were more.

At midway of life, and in late adulthood he was,
But how the burden of the age and the forehead drudgery,
Of the untrodden unknown he would cover!
Mused he a while or two and felt the break of his chest,
Alas! No more now he can walk, but a permanent rest.

A fellow monk by his side, took the pride,
‘Look down at your feet’, he said,
The road you have covered is under your feet’
And the rest you need to walk will always be,
You are the lord of the road, -that is the key.

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
