Fool's Gold And Eternal Hope


Some dig for gold
The wise dips into rainbow
For fool's gold is earthly found
True gold found only in eternal hope
For me I look for pearl
'Cause pearl symbolizes wisdom
Wisdom comes with time and the Divine
Which opens the eyes of a soul
To see the truth which can transfigure
Turn man angelic from a monstrous figure
To become loving and kind, no longer blind
He has transfigured thanks to be close to the Light
Man has become the child of God
For the one who eyes only for Heaven
Attainable will be the highest goals
Which first will be a heavenly earth
And earthly rebirth is the step next heaven rest

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
