Description

The beauty and simplicity of these poems translated from the Bengali collection of poems 'Sishu' were written by Tagore primarily to entertain the children and moved many contemporary writers.

These poems by Tagore written primarily to entertain the children moved many contemporary writers, including Andre Gide and Juan Jimenez. Tagore's love for Nature included children. The child is an idea, a symbol of the new life.

The beauty and simplicity of these poems translated from the Bengali collection of poems 'Sishu' (1903) are very moving. 'The Globe' in its review (1913) described it as 'a revelation more profound and more subtle than that in the Gitanjali,' and 'The Nation (1913) found in it 'a vision of childhood which is only paralleled in our literature by the work of William Blake.'
