Summum Bonnum

Originally uploaded by misscaroliner

All the breath and the bloom of the year in
     the bag of one bee:
All the wonder and wealth of the mine in
     the heart of one gem:
In the core of one pearl all the shade and the
     shine of the sea:
  Breath and bloom, shade and shine, - won-
     der, wealth, and -how far above them-
Truth, that's brighter than gem,
Trust, that's purer than pearl, -
Brightest truth, purest trust in the universe -
     all were for me
       In the kiss of one girl.

~ Robert Browning
