PBC0026: yearning for paradise

PBC 26 conveys joy in the coming earthly paradise and the joyous life, often, though not always in the year of revolutions, 1917. It refers to the village and natural motifs as paradise (W176). One instance jubilates, “the hills sing of miracles, / The sand chimes paradise” (W191). Several instances have a prayerful timbre (W192), some hailing “golden, sacred parts” (W440). This PBC brings pro-revolutionary hopes for the near future.
