"Only let this one tear-drop,
this Taj Mahal glisten spotlessly bright
on the cheek of Time for ever and ever..."
.... Oh king, you sought to harm time
with the magic of beauty and weave garland
that would blind formless death with deathless form...
This mausoleum stands still and unmoving in its place.
Here on this dusty earth, it keeps death tenderly covered in the shroud of memory.
The sight of the Taj Mahal enraptured Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore.
