Tagore’s Fireflies

Tagore Study 1


I’ve been doing some studies of Rabindranath Tagore (1861 – 1941) while reading his book of short poems, Fireflies, and this is the first one that I really liked, so I decided to pair it with one of the poems from his book. The style I was going for was partly influenced by his signature. I wish I could read his work in its original Bengali, because I’ve read it’s even more striking and melodious.
