Gitanjali - Presence:
- I know not from what distant time you are ever coming nearer to meet me.
Your sun and stars can never keep you hidden from me for aye.
In many a morning and eve your footsteps have been heard and your messenger has come within my heart and called me in secret.
I know not only why today my life is all astir, and a feeling of tremulous joy is passing through my heart.
It is as if the time were come to wind up my work, and I feel in the air a faint smell of your sweet presence.
