All other happiness come along with virtue


Luminous rudrakshas
grow in the mountains,

Much delight is borne
by the pleasing words
of the chaste wife / fiancee,

Virtuous qualities
are attained by the
soft nature and grace,

All other happiness
come along with VIRTUE,
resulting in consequence
with the help of his wealth!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
