But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay
Obviously the child born on the â€œSabbath Dayâ€ â€“ being bonny (pleasing to they eye), blithe (carefree, happy), good and gay (cheery, festive, high-spirited) â€“ has received manifold blessings, which may inclue good genes and prenatal care, good parents and grandparents, and a litany of other blessings of circumstance.
Happy-go-lucky people can somtimes remind us, by example, to â€œkeep things in perspectiveâ€. I can, at times, be dismissive of people advising that I keep a â€œpositive outlookâ€. At other times Iâ€™m reminded on the true state of affairs â€“ that life really IS a matter of perspective â€“ reminded by those able or practiced in the art of seeing things in a positive light.
Bonny people â€“ those pleasing to the eye â€“ you might think â€œhave it allâ€. You know thatâ€™s not the truth. You know that just by looking around or listening: â€œMy looks are fadingâ€. â€œIâ€™ve put on a few pounds.â€ â€œSheâ€™s on her third husband.â€ If you have it all on the outside and none on the inside what are you? A manequin? Someone â€œkeeping up appearancesâ€? All the bonny. None of the good and gay. Which can make the â€œbonny peopleâ€ who truly ARE ALSO good and gay and loving and humble and caring . . . all the more attractive.
May you find your inner Sundayâ€™s child. There are more than enough grumpy or unhappy folk in the world, so much so that neither heaven, nor earth, will begrudge you being just a bit more . . bonny . . and blithe . . and good . . and gay. (5 years and 821 days ago)
