“Who are you, reader, reading my poems an
hundred years hence?

I cannot send one single flower from this wealth
of the spring, one single streak of gold
from yonder clouds.

Open your doors and look abroad.
From your blossoming garden gather
fragrant memories of the vanished flowers
of an hundred years before”.

Rabindranath Tagore,
The Gardener, 1913, verse 85
