"And we, who have always thought of joy 
as *rising*, would feel the emotion
that almost amazes us
when a happy thing *falls*."

Architectural considerations aside, this has been
rattling around in my head all day. 

An horrific day.

"One day, when this terrifying vision's vanished,
let me sing ecstatic praise to angels saying yes!
Let my heart's clear-struck keys ring and not one
fail because of a doubting, slack, or breaking
- and again

Lovely stuff, those Elegies.
