Happiness flows in little drops,
Like happy tears and pleasant wiles,  
From gumdrops and lollipops,
Making snowballs and sand piles.

Happiness flows in tacit turns
From memory whirls that go to store.
Making inlets of return,
Happy phantoms that explore.

Happiness is El Do-ra-do
The fulfillment of a brochure.
Or the sight of a rainbow,
Or a moment on a tour.

Happiness is, for goodness sake,
From the near and yesteryear.
A piece of candled birthday cake                
And to some just an ice cold beer.

A cut, a bruise, a faded scar,
Or just a light beam from a star.

Happiness is catching a ride
through your poetic world ...
Many smiles here.

Seymour, this is a beauty!! Loved it and voted  

Yes, I am here, but I am dead, not alive,
my body goes on, my spirit has died
and I though alive, feel dead inside.

The beauty of nature is displayed,
not through itself,
but through the creatures
dwelling within its bosom.
