Update on April 19: A wise user told me recently that there's actually one little poem in Stray Birds that can be regarded as a solution to every problem we've had or will have. I couldn't agree more. That's how wise these poems are. If you have doubt about it, tell me your problem and I or the wise user will find one poem perfect for you.

Written by R. Tagore, one of India's greatest poets and a Nobel Laureate in 1913, the 325 short poems collected in Stray Birds - beautiful, simple yet powerful - are inspiring and soothing to the human spirit, at good times or bad times.

This app presents these amazing poems in easy-to-switch English and bilingual modes (English with Chinese Simplified or Traditional). You can read them one by one or browse them at random. You can also easily add poems you love most to your favorite list.

"This world is the world of wild storms kept tame with the music of beauty." Take this music of beauty with you, whether the world is of wild storms or great sunshine. You'll find your inner music.
