Happiness


Happiness is being home again,
Happiness is walking in the rain.
Happiness is waking with no pain.

Happiness to see my humble home,
Happiness at not being alone,
Happiness to sit, and not to roam.

Happiness is family to me,
Happiness in the faces, I longed to see,
Happiness is once more being free.

    A beautiful summary of simple pleasures
    which shine beams of happiness into receptive

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
