Like a laverock in the lift by Jean Ingelow.

Part 2 of 2.

Like

a laverock in the lift, sing, O bonny bride!
It's we two, it's we two, happy side by side.
Take a kiss from me, thy man; now the song begins:
“All is made afresh for us, and the brave heart wins.”

When the darker days come, and no sun will shine,
Thou shalt dry my tears, lass, and I’ll dry thine.
It's we two, it's we two, while the world's away,
Sitting by the golden sheaves on our wedding day.

    I really love this phrase "like a laverock in the lift". Laverock is the Scottish word for a lark. A wonderful little bird that sings. This phrase means to be like a laverock in the lift, perched up high in a tree or on a rock or maybe as it is flying and then to sing freely!

    There is a common between eastern and western, from ancient to nowadays, the literature like to express pure love using animals and plants. I suppose that probably because of their all acts from their genuine nature and instinct...Nice sharing.👏

    @Only欧令 That's a good point. Thank you for sharing. I agree with it. It's also curious how we can see many behaviours that we think are for humans that animals also do. For example, birds will preen themselves to look more attractive and find a partner, many animals also find a single mate for life, monkeys clean each other to build relationships etc.

    @Only欧令 Quite possibly. Like the quote: ignorance is bliss. It means the less we know, the happier we are.

    @Shamus Quite possible! 😁 May since Eve stolen the prohibited fruits, it seems that the suffering begun at that time, but the question is that they were happy before? I think that the pocessing of happiness must be able to have the accessibility of perception,This ability was acquired when she ate prohibited fruit. the first wisp of consciousness begun to awaken, the seed of civilization begun to sprout. Believe yourself😁
