Hymn**


May I be happy as I now am sad
in coming times- it only seems fair
those sad shall presently be glad.

Things then will never seem as bad
to those brave Joe's who dare
be happy as they now are sad.

Then I shall in carelessness be clad
as I am presently be-clad with care.
Those sad shall presently be glad.

I shall want nothing, nor be mad
at anyone or anything- so there!
I shall be happy as I now am sad.

Then I'll whisper to each listing lad
Fret not-for though you now despair
you, too, will presently be glad.

Happy, I'll remember what we had:
certain only in one whistful prayer:
May I be happy as I now am sad-
Those sad will presently be glad.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
