"So Take Joy Home"

                                             So take Joy home,
                                             And make a place in thy great heart for her,
                                             And give her time to grow and cherish her;
                                             Then will she come, and oft will sing to thee,
                                             When thou art working in the furrows; ay,
                                             Or weeding in the sacred  hour of dawn.
                                              It is a comely fashion to be glad,-
                                              Joy is the grace we say to God.

                                                                 -Jean Ingelow
