Interesting lines of poetry from Jane Hirshfield. The poem was published in January 2014’s “Poetry” — Reminds me of Guru Arjan’s Bhinni Rainariye, where sparkling stars are a symbol of optimism and of saints, who are optimistic.  They are called happy, alive, awake, and lovers. Very similar words are used in Jane’s poem:
 
The happy see only happiness,

the living see only life,

the young see only the young,


as lovers believe

they wake always beside one also in love.
