Voyage | Short Famous Poems and Poets

 
by Rabindranath 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.


by Walt Whitman

Gliding Over All

 GLIDING o’er all, through all, 
Through Nature, Time, and Space, 
As a ship on the waters advancing, 
The voyage of the soul—not life alone, 
Death, many deaths I’ll sing.

by Rabindranath Tagore

Lovers Gifts XL: A Message Came

 A message came from my youth of vanished days, saying, " I wait for
you among the quivering of unborn May, where smiles ripen for tears
and hours ache with songs unsung.
" It says, "Come to me across the worn-out track of age, through the gates of death.
For dreams fade, hopes fail, the fathered fruits of the year decay, but I am the eternal truth, and you shall meet me again and again in your voyage of life from shore to shore.
"


by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

THE PROSPEROUS VOYAGE

 THE mist is fast clearing.
And radiant is heaven, Whilst AEolus loosens Our anguish-fraught bond.
The zephyrs are sighing, Alert is the sailor.
Quick! nimbly be plying! The billows are riven, The distance approaches; I see land beyond! 1795.
