Another poem about joy

I flipped open a book today and found a poem about joy, reminding me of a poem I wrote not too long ago.

It's by, as the book describes him: "the slightly crazed seer-poet William Blake."

Maybe I should study poetry to truly know more about these writers. Anyhow, the similarity between his and mine is a bit strong, I think. Check out the above link after reading this:


"Eternity," 1793

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

If you like Blake, you should check out Rimbaud, too. And then Blaise Cendrars. Then maybe Frank O'Hara.
