Treasure Island

mark nwagwu

(17 May,1937 / Obetiti Nguru Nigeria)

Are you ever so happy

Are you ever so happy
you want the day
to spread into eternity

Are you ever so happy
you look at the soil
and see it grows flowers in your eyes

Are you ever so happy
you want the universe
to collapse into you

Are you ever so happy
you feel your heart
contains all of heaven

That's what love does
And all creation lives in you
Merry Christmas, Helena

    Im happy when seeing other people happy, happy to roam the streets, happy to go to work, happy to live and happy to sleep.Could that be possible? yes, probably when we write a good poetry about happiness, like Mark did.Excellent writes Mark. (Report) Reply

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
