Infant Joy

"Motherhood," by Elin Danielson-Gambogi
'I have no name;
I am but two days old.'
What shall I call thee?
'I happy am,
Joy is my name.'
Sweet joy befall thee!

Pretty joy!
Sweet joy, but two days old.
Sweet Joy I call thee:
Thou dost smile,
I sing the while;
Sweet joy befall thee!

--William Blake

May God enfold you and the Reverendbaby in a mothering embrace!

    I stumbled on this post and blog while searching for information on Elin Danielson-Gambogi and a print of a young mother. And this is the picture I've been searching for.
    I'd be so grateful if you could send me a link to that picture because it's so beautiful.
