Crossing was first published in 1918, along with Lover’s Gift. It consists of seventy-four poems, which are mainly religious. Many of the translations are transcreations and paraphrases of the original. These poems come from 'Naivedya (1901), Kheya (1906), Gitanjali (1910), Gitimalya (1914) and Gitali (1914)'.

The sources are varied and different in form and structure, with the last three being song collections. For the robust sonnet-like structures of many Naivedya Poems are significantly different from the mellow rhythm of 'Kheya'. It is not always easy to identify the original poem. But they all show Tagore’s subtle handling of words-trying to express the inexpressible.
