From my heart comes out and dances the image of my own desire.
The gleaming vision flits on.
I try to clasp it firmly, it eludes me and leads me astray.
I seek what I cannot get, I get what I do not seek.
― Rabindranath Tagore, from “15,” The Gardener. (BookSurge Classics May 1, 2009) Originally published 1913.
