Relative Happiness


Now happy they are
They do not have a car.
Or they'd have the sorrow

    you cleverly bring out the myth about one's wants and one's needs... the less the desires are the more you feel happy and comfotable in life...10 votes (Report) Reply

    Now happy they are, they do not have a car,
    The gas price too high
    Causes many to cry...and many to sigh...
    Nice writing and many people to feel this way about cars today...thank you. Jeannie (Report) Reply

    This poem reminds me a quote from Albert Einstein - who said

    'Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute,
    and it seems like an hour.
    Sit with a pretty girl for an hour,
    and it seems like a minute.
    THAT'S relativity.”

    Here this poem dipicts -
    Possession or non-possession of luxury
    And the relative hapiness
    Found with reasoning ability.

    An interesting subject
    put into the frame.

    Enjoyed reading this. Thank you. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,

Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
