Joy


If you want to see joy,
You must tell every girl and boy
That life is a wonder and dream...

And the joy on their faces
Is enough to last all places
And your heart will sing with joy!

To see love
Is enough
To last forever...
To see joy
Employs
Us together...

If you want to see joy
You must give your child a toy
And the happiness it brings
Is enough for a lifetime...

Joy to all and joy joy joy!

    my grandma was standing behind me when i read this, i almost didn't get a chance to comment cuz of her nagging, **** her. but anyway...
    i really liked your intro stanza, and the middle one was nice too, but 'employs' might not be the right word...just a suggestion, you don't have to change it if you don't want to
    this reminds me of that 'joy' song we heard at the arts festival, it repeated 'joy' in the end several times, as your poem does...10 ^.^ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
