In the eyes of Nazrul and Tagore

Rabindranath and Nazrul saw in their muse; divine beauty, resembling the mysteries of the celestial world. Both fixated on the indescribable beauty of nature and implicated it as embellishments of their dearly beloved.
We know it pretty well what it means to duplicate the romantic poets' description of beauty.
