This Enticing Joy

This enticing joy is dancing,
And my eyes love its essence.

This transcending joy speaks in tones
Of unrivalled radiance.

This fascinating joy opens up my heart
And baffles isolated decrees.

This joy is universal relief!
Suddenly, exile makes no sense.

This enticing joy fills
My soul with enamored silence.

Let joy walk with you and confuse you,
And feel like spirit facing a precipice!

Today and tomorrow,
Meet joy on your path.
Gather its petals,
Visit its ports of call,
And listen to its melody.

For, once you are converted,
Everything looks accomplished.

This enticing joy is dancing,
And my eyes love its essence.
