He who binds to himself a joy does the winged life destroy.
But he who kisses the joy as it flies, lives in eternities sunrise.
William Blake (1757-1827) English poet
“I love this poem because, for me, if I hold onto things too long, like a job, an idea, or relationship with my kids or loved ones, even though it’s a joy, sometimes I can stifle it. Things need to have their own freedom and if I can somehow let them go, kissing the joys that fly, and let them be, then, I think, I’m more in synch with the way things should be.”
