Friend (Art thou abroad ) Poem by Rabindranath Tagore

Friend Poem by Rabindranath Tagore

Friend by Rabindranath Tagore - Gitanjali Poem No. 23

Art thou abroad on this stormy night

on thy journey of love, my friend?

The sky groans like one in despair.

I have no sleep tonight.

Ever and again I open my door and look out on

the darkness, my friend!

I can see nothing before me.

I wonder where lies thy path!

By what dim shore of the ink-black river,

by what far edge of the frowning forest,

through what mazy depth of gloom art thou threading

thy course to come to me, my friend?
