One of William Blake's Songs of Experience.

I went to the Garden of Love,
And saw what I never had seen:
A Chapel was built in the midst,
Where I used to play on the green.

And the gates of this Chapel were shut,
And `Thou shalt not' writ over the door;
So I turn'd to the Garden of Love
That so many sweet flowers bore,

And I saw it was filled with graves,
And tomb-stones where flowers should be;
And Priests in black gowns were walking their rounds,
And binding with briars my joys & desires.

The garden of
is green without

and yields many
other than sorrow
and joy.
Love is beyond either
without spring,
without autumn,
it is always fresh.

Moulana Jalaluddin Rumi
