A Cup of Tea (56)
I have received your letter.
I was very glad indeed to get it,
more so since you have sent a blank sheet.
But I have read in it all that you have not written
but wanted to write.
Besides, what can words say?
Even after writing, what you had meant to write
So your silent letter is very lovely.
As it is, whenever you come to see me
you are mostly silent, but your eyes tell all,
and your silence too.
Some deep thirst has touched you,
some unknown shore has called you.
Whenever God calls He calls this way –
but how long will you go on standing on the shore?
Look! The sun is out
and the winds can’t wait to fill the boat’s sails!
