|An infant when it gazes on a light,|
A child the moment when it drains the breast,
A devotee when soars the host in sight,
An Arab with a stranger for a guest,
A sailor when the prize has struck in fight,
A miser filling his most hoarded chest,
Feel rapture: but not such true joy are reaping,
As they who watch oer what they love while sleeping.
Byron.Don Juan, Canto II. Stanza 196.
|Sorrows rememberd sweeten present joy.|
