For every moment you're immersed in beauty,
In opening the curtains of the heart,
Forgetting that your pleasure is your duty,
That you have made a living from your art,
You feel the joy of God at the Creation,
The stepping back to see that it is good,
While in the golden grip of an elation
Out of which you will what worlds you would.
