Love is the only emotion that expands intelligence; listen to the world speak to you, Derek Walcott
This is a retweet.
Shine forth, oh winter tease
Grant that eyes consume your freeze
In beauty anxieties welcome rest
Demonstrations of all that’s blessed
Thou hath no wounds to call forth pain
In peace and quiet we have lain
Allowing winter’s healing magic test
Draw us to yon branches cold and bare
Forgetting discomforts of frozen air
Allowing beauty to charm our souls
With the love and patience of the bold.
