Can anyone find me the real title of this poem by Rabindranath Tagore?
"Thou tanglest my heart in a hundred nooses of love,
What is this thy play?
It is but a little feeble life--
Why so many bonds to bind it?
At every turn and every moment
Thou winnest my love with thy wiles, but has none to give, thou stealer of hearts!
I wander about in search of thy heart.
O cruel nature;"....
That is the first stanza. In our book, it says that the title of the poem is "To Nature" but I think its wrong coz I can't find it in the net....
Please help! Thanks!

To Nature is the title... to find it on the web, I put the first line into search.

Is there any analysis about this poem? What's the poem all about?

Have you read it?
Analysis needs to come from YOU -- what YOU THINK as you read it. If you're unsure how to read a poem and get meaning out of it, follow the steps here:
