Of Happiness

Of Happiness

I have all along been sitting and glossing
under an apple tree
all my life
what happiness can be

a simple comparison of combined incidents
some happy
some sorry
from the milk of both
if you can but extract
the elixir of happiness
twill a successful story be
of what happiness tis

your poetry lends happiness to me
but let me be happy
so end here my story
one must simply be just happy!

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley
