     Tagore's 1996 Poem:
    Who are you reading curiously this poem of mine
    a hundred years from now
    Shall I be able to send to you
    --steeped in the love of my heart--
    the faintest touch of this spring morning's joy,
    the scent of a flower,
    a bird-song's note,
    a spark of today's blaze of color
    a hundred years from now?
    Yet, for once, open your window on the south
    and from your balcony
    gaze at the far horizon.
    Then, sinking deep in fancy think of the ecstatsies of joy
    that came floating down
    from some far heaven of bliss
    to touch the heart of the world
    a hundred years ago;
    think of the young spring day
    wild, impetuous and free;
    and of the south wind
    --fragrant with the pollen of flowers--
    rushing on restless wings to paint the earth
    with the radiant hues of youth
    a hundred years before your day.
    And think, how his heart aflame,
    his whole being rapt in song,
    a poet was awake that day
    to unfold like flowers
    his myriad thoughts
    with what wealth of love!--
    one morning a hundred years ago.
    A hundred years from now
    who is the new poet singing his songs to you?
    Across the years I send him
    the joyous greetings of this spring.
    May my song echo for a while,
    on your spring day, in the beating of your heart,
    in the murmur of bees,
    in the rustling of leaves,--
    a hundred years from today.
    February 1896
