A Moments Indulgence
by Rabindranath Tagore
I ask for a moment's indulgence to sit by thy side.
The works I have in hand I will finish afterwards.
Away from the sight of thy face my heart knows no rest nor respite,
and my work becomes an endless toil in a shoreless sea of toil.
Today the summer has come at my window with its sighs and murmurs;
and the bees are plying their minstrelsy at the court of the flowering grove.
Now it is time to sit quiet, face to face with thee,
and to sing dedication of life in this silent and overflowing leisure.
Isn't that a fabulous
spiritual poem about God being our all in all?!
I have only just
discovered Tagore, so I look forward to reading more of his work.
I hope you enjoyed it too.
Here are two inspirational poems about rest of my own....

Short Inspirational Poems about rest by Katherine T Owen
I have only to
be still and quiet
to be at one with
I lie here crying
at the sweetness of You.
All I can say is
Well done for experiencing the
independence from the world which comes from dependency on God.
“Blessed are the eyes which see the
things you see; for I tell you that many prophets
and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear
what you hear, and have not heard it.”
(Luke 10:23-24, NKJV)
