Photographer's Note

** ** ** ** **


Esta es la tercera foto que presento del Taj Mahal, es un encuadre más cercano en el que se pueden apreciar un poco mejor la decoración y los adornos en la arquitectura de este colosal monumento que cuanto más te acercas, más te das cuenta de que es un verdadero trabajo de orfebrería sobre mármol blanco.
Rabindranath Tagore llamó a esta joya de la arquitectura Mogol "una lágrima en la mejilla del tiempo", y escribió este poema: . . . . . . . . . . . . . que por cierto no lo he encontrado traducido al castellano.



***

You allowed your kingly power to vanish, Shah Jahan,
but your wish was to make imperishable a tear-drop of love.

Time has no pity for the human heart,
he laughs at its sad struggle to remember.

You allured him with beauty, made him captive,
and crowned the formless death with fadeless form.

The secret whispered in the hush of night to the ear
of your love is wrought in the perpetual silence of stone.

Though empires crumble to dust, and centuries are lost in shadows,
the marble still sighs to the stars, "I remember."

"I remember." But life forgets, for she has her call to the Endless:
and she goes on her voyage unburdened,
leaving her memories to the forlorn forms of beauty.
