The Soul of the Rose/John William Waterhouse
Come near, come near, come near—Ah, leave me still
A little space for the rose-breath to fill!
—William Butler Yeats
James Joyce suggested that when your spirit is lifted by beauty, your mind quiets. What stillnesses are you cultivating? What beauties are you letting in?
