The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Rivers to the Sea by Sara Teasdale:|
Gold and gleaming the misty lake,
The mirrored lights like sunken swords,
Glimmer and shake.
Oh, is it not enough to be

My throat should ache with praise, and I
Should kneel in joy beneath the sky.
Oh, beauty are you not enough?
RIVERS TO THE SEA
Why am I crying after love
With youth, a singing voice and eyes
