“Send Me the Love”

I’ll try not to do this very often, but this pas­sage has been on my mind since I read it in the cur­rent issue of World:

Not for me is the love that knows no restraint and is like foam­ing wine that, hav­ing burst its ves­sel in a moment, would run to waste.

Send me the love that is cool and pure like Your rain, which bless­es the thirsty earth and fills the home­ly earth­en jars.

Send me the love that would soak down into the cen­ter of being, and from there would spread like the unseen sap through the branch­ing tree of life, giv­ing birth to fruits and flowers.

Send me the love that keeps the heart still with the full­ness of peace.
—Rabindranath Tagore (1861–1941)
