The sheet music on the stand gives a hint to the observant viewer. “Green Sleeves,” is a song that tells of a love being cast aside by Green Sleeves; who, in spite of everything, is referred to as, “all my joy.”
Sunlight streaming through the window represents joy returning. Although the view through the door is vague, the outlook is bright.
For beautiful music to spill forth from the harp, there must first be tension placed on the strings. Oh how precious joy is, once regained after having been lost.
