(poetry diary 112) Feeling sad and overwhelmed today (got an in-law back in the hospital, a former professor/friend of the family died, and of course there’s [!@#$%^&*] all the political news, etc.) So am looking for happy poems.


Happy as a Dog’s Tail
Anna Swir
Happy as something unimportant
and free as a thing unimportant.
As something no one prizes
and which does not prize itself.
