The title comes from William Wordsworth. Obviously, he had the correct last name. I didn't quite 'get' this quote as a young fellow but now that I'm older I think I understand as I re-read the short poem today. He's saying that the joy and enthusiasm of youth should continue unto death, or life isn't worth living. As an adult, he knew there was so much that could extinguish that spark---that it was worth fighting to keep that state of mind. This is a 6 by 4.5 inches gel pen drawing with color pencil and color gel. It is Original Jones Art going back to his poetical roots in northwest Austin, Texas.
