Rabindranath Tagore’s Poem ‘Strong Mercy’-An Analytical Study

“Strong Mercy” by Rabindranath Tagore is a poem that reflects on the transformative power of mercy and the refining nature of refusals. The speaker acknowledges their many desires and pitiful cries but recognizes that they have been saved by the hard refusals they have faced.

The poem suggests that these refusals, driven by a strong sense of mercy, have been woven into the fabric of the speaker’s life. Day by day, they are being shaped and made worthy of the simple yet precious gifts bestowed upon them without their asking. These gifts include the sky, light, body, life, and mind. The refusals protect the speaker from the perils that come with excessive desire.

The poem further illustrates the oscillation between moments of lethargy and moments of urgency in the speaker’s journey. There are times when they linger in a state of passivity, and there are times when they awaken and eagerly seek their goal. However, the speaker notes that the divine presence cruelly hides itself from them.

Through this divine hiding and continuous refusals, the speaker recognizes that they are being made worthy of full acceptance. By refusing them at times, the divine saves them from the dangers of weak and uncertain desires.

In simple terms, “Strong Mercy” is a poem that explores the transformative nature of mercy and the significance of refusals in shaping one’s character. The speaker acknowledges their desires and cries but appreciates that they have been saved through the refusals they have encountered. The poem highlights the refining power of mercy, the protection from excessive desires, and the process of becoming worthy through acceptance and refusals. It conveys a sense of gratitude for the mercy received and an understanding of the lessons learned from refusals. 0 0 0
