Simple Gifts

(Special dedication to Berenice–)

 

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come ’round right.’

 

Simple Gifts,

Joseph Brackett, 1848

    thank you

    [an all time beloved song
    and i recently quite
    gave way to it, heart and soul, while in the shower…
    and it never felt..
    it never felt
    more true
    more true
    than very lately. :-)]
