In Rabindranath Tagore's poem Closed Path, the poet believes he has used up all of his creative force. He believes his writing days are done and that he should wait quietly for the end of his days as well. However, he is motivated to make music after believing he had lost his capacity to write. He goes on to say that music is a language which cannot be written down and which requires no audience.
Tagore was an Indian poet and musician who created many poems about his experiences with love and life. This poem specifically talks about creativity and how we can recover it when we have lost it. It is believed that this poem was written in 1864 but not published until 1905 so Tagore must have felt creatively blocked at some point during his life.
This poem has been interpreted by several people including John Keats and Virginia Woolf. They all agree that the path Tagore refers to is a musical path and that it cannot be written down because music is a language which cannot be recorded.
Additionally, they also believe that the poet does not want to stop making music even though he thinks there is nothing more to write about. They say that this shows that even if we think we have run out of things to write about, we need only turn our eyes toward creating something new.
The poet feels relieved and grateful to nature at the end of the poem for rescuing his day from being squandered. The poet also realizes that nothing can stop the flow of time, which is a fact that we all have to accept.
Poetry writing is one creative approach to explore thoughts and feelings. The goal is to be open, appreciate, investigate, and examine one's deepest ideas and feelings soulfully. Writing poetry may help a person concentrate their ideas, eliminate cyclical thinking, and begin to see life from a different angle. Poetry also allows for the expression of emotions that might not be appropriate or possible in another way.
When expressing thoughts and ideas through poetry, one can do so effectively because poems have rules that must be followed. These rules include formal elements such as meter and rhyme that help give structure to the poem. In addition, poets use imagery, allusion, and metaphor to create impressions in readers' minds by linking disparate things together. These devices serve to make insights come alive for readers.
People often cite beauty as well as truth when explaining why they like poetry so much. It isn't necessary for poetry to be beautiful to be effective or interesting to read; some people even say that true poetry makes them cry. However, it does seem that many people enjoy reading about experiences they have had, or will ever experience, because these experiences are common to all humans. As well, poetry helps people understand themselves and others better by examining their most deeply held beliefs and values.
Some people claim that poetry is more powerful than prose because we get to feel what the poet is feeling at the moment of creation.
The poet spent the entire day in mourning. The poet's head was filled with anxiety. As a result, he believes that the time he has already spent has been squandered, and that the remainder of his day will be swept away by his mental toughness. He feels like a failure because he has not achieved what he set out to do.
Now let us look at some of the best poems about grief:
Emily Dickinson wrote several poems about grief. Here are two:
"A Death in the Family" (1872)
I felt my life evaporate within me, as I stood there listening-- / It was a death in the family, and they told me about it later at the door. / The blow had come upon me so suddenly that I found myself unable for a moment to grasp its meaning; / But now that I did grasp it, I saw how right they were who said it was a death in the family.
Here we can see that Emily was very much affected by the death of someone close to her. She describes it as if it was something she had expected all along, but still, it was a great loss to feel your life leave you like that.
She also talks about feeling like a failure because she has not achieved what she set out to do.
