Where does this quote by Tagore come from?
« on: October 29, 2017, 06:01:54 AM »
I keep seeing it in the Internet but they don't reference the source.

It goes:

SILENCE MY SOUL
 
Silence my soul, these trees are prayers.
I asked the tree, “Tell me about God”;
then it blossomed.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was a Bengali polymath—writer, poet, painter, and composer.

Does anyone know where this material came from?

Thanks!

No luck, but I'd guess from here, if he wrote it down to begin with.
