Where The Mind Is Without Fear

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake

by Rabindranath Tagore

.....a sweet song for a sweet baby, sung in sweet manner.....
Always going to be one of my favorites. It has depth, rhyme and its message is lit!
Infant smiles are his own smiles; Heaven and earth to peace beguiles. Beautiful poem, so soft approach.
