A Quote by Thomas Hood on darkness, heaven, ignorance, and joy

I remember, I remember The fir-trees dark and high; I used to think their slender tops Were close against the sky; It was a childish ignorance, But now 't is little joy To know I'm farther off from heaven Than when I was a boy.

Thomas Hood (1798 - 1845)
