The Gardener XIV: I Was Walking by the Road by Rabindranath Tagore

know why, when the noonday was past
and bamboo branches rustled in the
The prone shadows with their out-
stretched arms clung to the feet of
the hurrying light.
The koels were weary of their
I was walking by the road, I do not
know why.
The hut by the side of the water is
shaded by an overhanging tree.
Some on was busy with her work,
and her bangles made music in the
I stood before this hut, I know not
The narrow winding road crosses
many a mustard field, and many a
mango forest.
It passes by the temple of the
village and the market at the river
I stopped by this hut, I do not know
Years ago it was a day of breezy

for the ferry at the bank.
I slowly return upon my steps, I
do not know why.
