Crying - Poem by Galway Kinnell
Crying only a little bit
is no use. You must cry
until your pillow is soaked!
Then you can jump in the shower
Then you can throw open
and, "Ha, ha! ha ha!"
And if people say, "Hey,
what's going on up there?"
"Ha ha!" sing back, "Happiness
was hiding in the last tear!
I wept it! Ha ha!"
