When She Passed by Me

When she passed by me with quick steps,
the end of her skirt touched me.
From the unknown island of a heart came a sudden warm breath of spring.
A flutter of a flitting touch brushed me and vanished in a moment,
like a torn flower petal blown in the breeze.
It fell upon my heart like a sigh of her body, and a whisper of her heart.

~ A poem by Rabindranath Tagore
