Nice image, Ruth, and the wisdom, of course, is incontrovertible.
Oooo - YES! "...kissing the joy as it flies, [living] in eternity's sunrise." Love this - goosebumps...
I love these lines of William Blake and, as George writes, a profound truth is stated here, and in such a beautiful and economical way. (Add a few em-dashes and you've got Emily Dickinson! Never quite realised Blake's influence on ED before.)
What a beautiful way to think about Joy, dear Ruth. And the image is gorgeous!
Perfect. Thank you.
This short verse just makes me sigh with happiness
