But first of all Surprised by joy was the beginning of a poem by William Wordsworth.
Surprised by joy - impatient as the wind

But thee, long buried in the silent tomb.
Is there a better description of the recurring shock of grief to be found anywhere?
Word To Use Today: joy. This word comes to us from the Old French from the Latin gaudēre to be glad.
