Sonnet IV

 

Sonnet IV

 

There is a felicity in living

so fully satisfying that a man

Joyously awakening, may span

The hours and, homing,  sleep without misgiving

A feeling for Reality it’s spring,

No dreamer filled w/ selfish pleasures can

It gain.  From love of fellows must he plan

To freely give, no matter what it bring;

Share living fully with his closest kin,

A simple well-directed life begin.

He who knows it’s bliss will take the quickpace

From dawn to dawn with bright shining face

Proof of that boundless ecstasy within

of which art shows the faintest type & trace

 

-the grandfather of an old roomie of mine…  don’t even know the man’s name.

    Beautiful and expansive prose. Gives the reader the insight that a life may be well-lived without adhering to the customary social expectation and norms.
