Rabindranath Tagore’s Poem ‘Sail Away’-An Analytical Study

“Sail Away” by Rabindranath Tagore is a poem that portrays a secret journey between the speaker and a beloved companion, embarked upon early in the day. They plan to sail alone, without anyone else knowing, to a destination that is undefined and limitless.

The poem describes the vastness of the ocean they navigate, a shoreless expanse where their boat drifts. In the presence of the beloved companion’s silent and attentive smile, the speaker’s songs become melodies that swell freely, like waves unhindered by the constraints of words. This suggests a sense of liberation and boundless expression in the company of the beloved.

However, the poem raises the question of whether the right time for their journey has arrived. Are there still responsibilities and tasks to fulfill? As evening descends upon the shore and the light begins to fade, seabirds return to their nests, signifying the approach of nightfall and the need to conclude their journey.

The poem ends with uncertainty and a sense of transience. The speaker wonders when the constraints or chains holding them back will be released, allowing the boat, like the last glimmer of sunset, to disappear into the night. This implies that the moment of departure and ultimate freedom is uncertain and may come unexpectedly.

In simple terms, “Sail Away” is a poem that depicts a clandestine voyage shared by the speaker and a companion. They plan to sail together secretly, away from the prying eyes of the world, to a destination unknown. The vastness of the ocean symbolizes the freedom and boundless expression they experience in each other’s presence. However, the poem raises the question of whether it is the right time to embark on this journey, considering their unfinished responsibilities. The ending evokes a sense of uncertainty, wondering when the moment of liberation will arrive, and the boat will fade away into the night. The poem conveys a sense of longing, anticipation, and the fleeting nature of opportunities. 0 0 0
