Mary Oliver quote #265 from Swan: Poems and Prose Poems

If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy dont hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back that sometimes something happened better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway thats often the case. Anyway whatever it is dont be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb. Dont Hesitate
