Poem number 69 from the book, Gitanjali, A Collection of Indian Songs
By Rabindranath Tagore


The same stream of life that runs through
my veins night and day runs through the
world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy
through the dust of the earth in numberless
blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous
waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the
ocean-cradle of birth and of death, in ebb
and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the
touch of this world of life. And my pride
is from the life-throb of ages dancing in
my blood this moment.

Gitanjai or Song Offerings was written by Tagore, the Indian poet, novelist and playwright who was awarded a Novel Prize for literature before his death in 1941.
