Where Shadow Chases Light

This is my delight, thus to wait and watch at the wayside,
where shadow chases light, and the rain comes in the wake of the summer.

Messengers, with tidings from unknown skies, greet me and speed along the road.
My heart is glad within, and the breath of the passing breeze is sweet.

From dawn till dusk I sit here before my door, and I know that of a sudden
the happy moment will arrive when I shall see.

In the meanwhile I smile and I sing all alone.
In the meanwhile the air is filling with the perfume of promise.

~ A poem by Rabindranath Tagore
