Happy New Year!


Happiness - a quality obscure,
Associated with good and pure.

Presumed the culmination of success,
Part of living when devoid of stress.

“Yesterday” plays court to future gain.

“Now” is in our grasp - we can detain
Each fragile moment at its best - no fee!

We overlook the happiness that’s free:

Yellow daffodils in morning sun,
Even webs an untaught spider’s spun,

A chrysalis that magically will change -
Rewards of Nature in our daily range.
