VILLANELLE FOR RABINDRANATH TAGORE

From Sanskrit, he freed the writing songs and the art
While spurning the resisting linguistic structures.
The lines of 'Song Offerings' came from his pure heart.

In Bengal renaissance, he wouldn't stand apart.
To West he introduced the Indian culture.
From Sanskrit, he freed the writing songs and the art.

Yeats criticized his translation using the words’ dart.
'Sacrifice', from prior drama, meant a rupture.
The lines of 'Song Offerings' came from his pure heart.

'Chokher Bali ' means mourning on the widow's part.
Biology, physics infused his work’s structure.
From Sanskrit, he freed the writing songs and the art.

He gave his Nobel Prize monies for the schools' start.
Beyond the limits, he conceived a new culture.
The lines of 'Song Offerings' came from his pure heart.

"Tagore Song" and ‘Baul’ ballads kept his inner part.
'Tin Sangi' and ' Se' along Goethe mean culture.
From Sanskrit, he freed the writing songs and the art.
The lines of 'Song Offerings' came from his pure heart.
