Closed Path

Closed Path

I thought that my voyage had come to its end
At the last limit of my power, – that the path before me was closed,
That provisions were exhausted
And the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity.

But I find that thy will knows no end in me.
And when old words die out on the tongue,
New melodies break forth from the heart;
And where the old tracks are lost,
New country is revealed with its wonders.

Poem Closed Path - Rabindranath Tagore
