Artist's Description

(Photo of my hand)

GUEST by Rabindranath Tagore translated by William Radice (Penguin Classics, 2005)

Lady, you have filled these exile days of mine
With sweetness, made a foreign traveler your own
As easily as these unfamiliar stars, quietly,
Coolly smiling from heaven, have likewise given me
Welcome. When I stood at this window and stared
At the southern sky, a message seemed to slide
Into my soul from the harmony of the stars,
A solemn music that said, “We know you are ours-
Guest of our light from the day you passed
From darkness into the world, always our guest.”

Lady, your kindness is a star, the same solemn tune
In your glance seems to say, “I know you are mine.”
I do not know your language, but I hear your melody:
“Poet, guest of my love, my guest eternally.”
