Colours of Cheerfulness


I love colours,
I love flowers,
I love butterflies,
I love small coloured
Fish and shills.

I love buds of roses,
Oh, I love kittens,
I love Lightening,
I love rain drops,
I love singing birds,
I free caged ones,
I love waves’ sound,
I love ringing springs,
I love to swim in rivers,
Oceans and lakes
As well
I love good food,
I love good juice.

I give good lectures,
I give good speeches,
I teach well,
I write well,
I paint well,
I design well,
I sing well,
I dance well,
I cook well,
Though I hate cooking,
And I rarely cook.

I mother well,
I love well,
But I still did not
Find a frank lover,
And may be will never do.
But who cares
With all of these
Treasures in me
And in my hand
I will say goodbye
To sadness;
To whatever
I lack or
Do not have,
And I
Should be happy,
For this is life
Not Paradise;
And lacking is
A fact for everybody.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
