Tumbling Dreams Subside

Tumbling dreams subside . . .
Awake, my heart, to be loved
Rejoice how precious!

Haiku inspired by: Haiku Heights weekly prompt of Rejoice; Big Tent Poetry's encouragement to borrow a line from another poem; and ABC Wednesday's devotion to the letter "L"--which of course means love.
I came upon Robert Bridges when I looked up the true meaning of delight on dictionary.com. His poem  My Delight and Thy Delight led me soon to another called Awake, My Heart, which I abbreviated for line #2 of my Haiku. I want to thank my friend Tumblewords . . . all day long I turned words over in my mind until I found the perfect starting word: Tumbling!
