The first poem is appropriately enough, addressed to Shah Jahan, the man who built the Taj. In lover's Gift and Crossing, Tagore's poetry gains a religious tone. A perfect complement, these poems clearly reveal Tagore's mystical genius.

The first poem in Lover's Gift is, appropriately enough, addressed to Shah Jehan, the man who built the Taj to enshrine the memory of his beloved and their love. Tagore's gift to his lover are his songs - lyrical, profound and moving.

In Crossing, Tagore's poetry gains a religious tone. Images like the boat, the road, the sail and the lantern are used to symbolize the ultimate journey to God, the universal lover. A perfect complement to Lover's gift, these poems clearly reveal Tagore's mystical genius.
