The Child-Angel March 16, 2007

They clamour and fight, they doubt and despair, they know no end to their wrangling. Let your life come amongst them like a flame of light, my child, unflickering and pure, and delight them into silence. They are cruel in their greed and their envy, their words are like hidden knives thirsting for blood.

Go and stand amidst their scowling hearts, my child, and let your gentle eyes fall upon them like the forgiving peace of the evening over the strife of the day. Let them see your face, my child, and thus know the meaning of all things;

let them love you and thus love each other. Come and take your seat in the bosom of the limitless, my child.

At sunrise open and raise your heart like a blossoming flower, and at sunset bend your head and in silence complete the worship of the day. 

poem by Rabindranath Tagore

    I see you have changed the theme….its nice mainly because of the space and flexibility …but i am missing your rose petals ( the header image[;)]]

    I am missing it too, dear…
    but apparenty it is really not easy to read the white text on the back background. This theme is my old one, i had it for more thatn one year and came back to it again 🙂

    I really wish WordPress will deliever a nice suitable one for me (any many others), something like this one but with the header.
