Tagore: 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.

La capatul puterilor,
credeam ca s-a sfarsit calatoria mea,
ca drumul s-a inchis,
ca nu mai am nimic si ca timpul vietii mele s-a retras
in adapostul unei obscuritati mute.

Dar vad acum ca voia Ta n-are sfarsit inlauntrul meu.
si ca, atunci cand vechile cuvinte mor in toate limbile pamantului,
cantece noi tasnesc din inima,
iar acolo unde vechile urme se sterg,
ia fiinta o noua patrie, cu alte si alte minuni.

(Rabindranath Tagore)
