AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Heaven.

Homer, North Woods Club, Adirondacks (The Interrupted Tete-a-Tete), 1892


Most Sweet it is


Most sweet it is with unuplifted eyes
To pace the ground, if path be there or none,
While a fair region round the traveller lies
Which he forbears again to look upon;
Pleased rather with some soft ideal scene,
The work of Fancy, or some happy tone
Of meditation, slipping in between
The beauty coming and the beauty gone.
If Thought and Love desert us, from that day
Let us break off all commerce with the Muse:
With Thought and Love companions of our way,
Whate'er the senses take or may refuse,
The Mind's internal heaven shall shed her dews
Of inspiration on the humblest lay.

- William Wordsworth
