The German poem is metrical. Is it possible that it is a poem inspired by Tagore but not one by Tagore himself. in other words: is the poem an original German poem written by this Paul Cremer after having read Tagore's poems. The Cremer text does seem to show a monistic tendency which is not so prominent in Tagore's own writings of that period.
Yours
Victor van Bijlert

Dear All,
I am looking for the following, but failed to have any trace of it in the internet:
Paul Cremer, Rabindranath Tagore (Sonntagsbeilage der Vossischtn Zeitung vom 18. Januar 1914)
I would like to know whether the following poem was published in the newspapers Sunday Special, and what ought to be its original in English.

•'Menschlicher Wesen Myriaden,
Die diesen Erdball bewohnen.
Kommen zu mir in das Herz,
Wahrhafte Freude zu finden
In gegenseit'ger Gesellschaft:
Liebende treten dort ein.
Blicken einander ins Auge,
Kinderlein stehen und lachen.
Fröhlich erglänzen die Wangen.
Voll ist mein Herz bis zum Rande,
Voll von erhabener Freude,
Und ich gewahre auf Erden
Nicht eine einzige Seele.
Kann es wohl anders auch sein,
Da in mein Herz alle Seelen
Eintraten, Wohnung zu nehmen ?'<
Regards
Debabrata Chakrabarti
