Don't Let My Sadness Deceive You


DON'T LET MY SADNESS DECEIVE YOU

Don't let my sadness deceive you-
I am a happy man
I live where I am in my own loneliness,
And sing songs from here.

But I too in another mode
Love the people I love
As I love myself - even more.

I am a happy man,
And I am a sad man-
I have a happy song
And a sad song -
I sing them both
Sometimes at the same time-
But I am both
And I have both-
Happy and sad
Sad and happy
I sing my song.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
