Vintage Tin Assemblage Art – My Delight and Thy Delight

My Delight and Thy Delight

No Tom, its not the tin you thought, is it?  Unlike you I can multitask 😉 and this tin was being worked on in tandem with the one you spotted. This tin has been influenced by the beautiful poem My Delight and Thy Delight by the British poet Robert Bridges.

My Delight and Thy Delight

Again my love of words have come into play.

Robert Bridges
My Delight and Thy Delight

MY delight and thy delight
Walking, like two angels white,
In the gardens of the night:

My desire and thy desire
Twining to a tongue of fire,
Leaping live, and laughing higher:

Thro’ the everlasting strife
In the mystery of life.

Love, from whom the world begun,
Hath the secret of the sun.

Love can tell, and love alone,
Whence the million stars were strewn,
Why each atom knows its own,
How, in spite of woe and death,
Gay is life, and sweet is breath:

This he taught us, this we knew,
Happy in his science true,
Hand in hand as we stood
‘Neath the shadows of the wood,
Heart to heart as we lay
In the dawning of the day.
