Gitanjali - Flower:
Pluck this little flower and take it, delay not!
I fear lest it droop and drop into the dust.
I may not find a place in your garland, but honour it with a touch of pain from your hand and pluck it.
I fear lest the day end before I am aware, and the time of offering go by.
Though its colour be not deep and its smell be faint, use this flower in your service and pluck it while there is time.
