my pain is heavy
but it is as nothing
compared to my joy
love of woman
satisfaction in the ordinary day
all these strengthened by
the daily imperfections of creation
that would tear down these joys
and destroy them
you cannot destroy
what Love has given
so if the pain of endurance be heavy
let the joy of endurance be light....
