Happiness Is Attained


And what is happiness
Is happiness really attained
Through fame through truthfulness
Through sense gratification
Through self-control self-interest
Peace opulence renunciation consumption
Sacrifice penance charity vows
Regulated duties that I
Can't say, my dear but I say
Happiness is within us we must search it out
Though it differs from person to person
And what is happiness best known to person concerned.

    Happiness is within us but often attained too. It is a process of multiplication as well. A fine composition sir. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
