    Well expressed appreciation of happiness. Almost apologetic. As if afraid of being 'exceedingly happy'. And the surrealistic image of breakfast with gods and goddesses - little lower than the angels... Do we deserve it? Well rounded up poem. (Report) Reply

    Through antique panes of glass on three sides,
    I see verdant foilage, gently coloring;
    and, I feel myself fully surrounded,
    Suddenly, I am very happy. (Report) Reply

    In eighteen and sixty two,
    Sarah and Isaac asked the President to free the slaves.
    In nineteen and fifty eight;
    Ruthie and Roy Joe asked the President to ban the bomb.
    In twenty and nine, their Grandson Brian,
    Made a statue, reminiscent of these procreative deeds;
    And the three, were very happy! (Report) Reply

    I saw a hawk rise in the sky
    ; and suddenly. I was very happy!
    I believe God spoke to me;
    and gave me a feeling of well bveing. (Report) Reply

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
