Lo in the orient when the gracious light…


Lo in the orient when the gracious light
Lifts up his burning head, each under eye
Doth homage to his new-appearing sight,
Serving with looks his sacred majesty,
And having climbed the steep-up heavenly hill,
Resembling strong youth in his middle age,
Yet mortal looks adore his beauty still,
Attending on his golden pilgrimage:
But when from highmost pitch with weary car,
Like feeble age he reeleth from the day,
The eyes (fore duteous) now converted are
From his low tract and look another way:
So thou, thy self out-going in thy noon:
Unlooked on diest unless thou get a son

Children are gifts of God. The off springs of any species are the extension of their personalities. When it comes to human beings, especially in holy marriage, the children manifest the pure love of the couples. But this instinct for union for the existence of the humankind can degenerated into lust, which is just momentary. If the lust dies in itself, the life loses its sublime values. It ceases to be a real life. However, what about those celibate ones? What about gender discrimination? Be it son or daughter, I believe is the extension of human generation.
