There is no extra-ordinary happiness
Beyond your existing perimeter of view
The extra-ordinary happiness lies within
…within your circle and within you

Beyond your circle forever stretches forth
It is as limitless as the deep blue sky
But to hope for happiness in its lap
Is to live as a wasted melancholy sigh

As the daylight flees in lengthened shadow
And the hills are bathed in a purple-blue mist
There lies the new of today with childhood
For better and new can only exist…..

….for a moment in your palm then it too is old
And the dream that rises on wobbly limb
As a new-born calf, soon rests in the fold
Victim of reality and prey of time
