Happiness is...


If the leaves of the trees turn color again
The green slowly changing
Into scarlet and yellow ocher
The sunlight plays through the leaves
And a golden light shines through

When the wind stirs up a storm almost
My hair blown, all mixed up
The rain pounding against the windows
And fungus growing fast

When the scents in the air are changing
And I stumble on acorns and chestnuts
The dew glistens on the leaves
Of the low-hanging morning mist

If the smells and colors takes my breath away
Every step I take surprises me more and more
Each day looks different again from the previous
And I breathlessly look at all the splendor

That's when the great happiness has come
And when autumn in all it's beauty is there
Pure enjoyment dawned
A great season of rejoicing

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
