I need light … ” … light is an invitation to happiness … ” Mary Oliver, from “Poppies” in New and Selected Poems, Volume One.
But I also say this:
that light is an invitation to happiness,
and that happiness, when it’s done right,
is a kind of holiness, palpable and redemptive.
~ Mary Oliver, from “Poppies” in New and Selected Poems, Volume One.
