(c) 26 (Life/Philosophy) A Full Heart And Empty Mind

If its true that truth doesnt have a path
Then how do we reach it?
With a clear mind and love in your heart
Strip yourself bit by bit
Of all the labels, beliefs, tags u must depart

Truth will enter without any invitation
As swift as the wind and unbeknown
Not when you are watching for its formation
As sudden as sunlight or as a bird thats flown
But heart must be full and the mind empty of creation

Here the simple lines capture the story of an Irish legend, Angus the god of water, and the endless search for beauty
The pangs of love marvelously woven in a beautiful verse that is rich in rhythm and rhyme.
The brilliant moon and all the milky sky, And all that famous harmony of leaves, Had blotted out man's image and his cry. A girl arose that had red mournful lips And seemed the greatness of the world in tears... A superb creation of poetry. I enjoyed readng it.
terrific imaginary poem.........i like much...........i always love you
I love this poem! My favorite of Yeats, but this is the wrong version- not at all like the one I had read in an anthology, and not nearly so beautiful.
