To whom shall I send my hymn of praise --
This yearning of my heart?
It seeks voice to give value
To that which is beyond all value --
But it remains silent.
It only says:  'I am happy.'
The rhythm comes to a stop,
But its cadence says:  'I am blest.'

-- Rabindranath Tagore
(in Poetry of the Spirit, edited by Alan Jacobs)
