A merry heart is much-honed art


The whole of me when felt a rare buoy
From within, which when felt out was joy,
And a source was of my smile,
Which I saved safe in my mind’s file
To bring it forth when the spring of joy dried
For reasons that all logic defied,
But when I recopied the smile
From my mind’s reserved file,
The smile the source was of the river of my joy.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
