Joys and sorrows

More than all the knowledge in all the libraries of ancient and modern worlds.

More than all the words of holy people and the grand creations of artists.

A flood of tears, liberate the soul,
rising to the surface brings emotional truth
to a face distorted by others men's thoughts.

Not just sorrow, but joy,
whether induced by a remembering
or a forgetting.

Not haughty pleasure
but true, unaffected joy,
brings unity to a disposition
racked by dreams of separation.
