A merry heart is much-honed art


The whole of me when felt a rare buoy
From within, which when felt out was joy,
And a source was of my smile,
Which I saved safe in my mind’s file
To bring it forth when the spring of joy dried
For reasons that all logic defied,
But when I recopied the smile
From my mind’s reserved file,
The smile the source was of the river of my joy.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
