…that blessed mood,
In which the burthen of the mystery,
In which the heavy and the weary weight
Of all this unintelligible world,
Is lightened-that serene and blessed mood,
In which the affections gently lead us on-
Until, the breath of this corporeal frame
And even the motion of our human blood
Almost suspended, we are laid asleep
In body, and become a living soul;
While with an eye made quiet by the power
Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things.
An excerpt from William Wordsworth’s, “Tintern Abbey.”

This is so appropriate to the present “unintelligible world”. Thank you. Wordsworth is one of my favorite poets.
Incredibly beautiful words by a superb poet. A blessed Christmas to you!
