A drop of happiness


From the grief ocean, I steal a drop of happiness
For every autumn I get a lovely beautiful spring
For human youth; the festive, to dance and sing
We nature within nature; keepeth blissful fitness

When spring comes; nature with its beauty greet
Flower with hue sways and butterflies do flip flop
Soothing breeze sensational blush; a birth of hope
Season love, mingles with whole colour, they meet.

Know, a place in mind away from the physical spring
Hatching spring and brooding youth forever, a bliss
Grief of the world; dry petals, away from hate, I kiss
From the grief ocean a drop of happiness, they bring.

There will not be a spring without autumn, no taste
If no sorrow what taste happiness may provide, say
If no youth why then heart will throb, gaily and gay
Autumn prepares to decorate the heart with haste

    There will not be a spring without autumn, no taste
    That is the beauty of seasons. If we have one season all through the year, it will be monotonous. Change brings yearning for something new always. Summer feels great in winter and so on. Thank you. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
