Joy is the gentle waves on the water in the lake,
Joy is the duck who performs just for our sake,
Joy is the melodies the song birds can make.
Happiness is a blue sky where white clouds abound,
Happiness is watching a spider weave its web round,
Happiness is heard in an echoing wilderness sound,
Happiness is everywhere, it is not hard to be found.
Art we can find in the shape of an old tree,
Art can be enjoyed in the buzzing of a bee,
Art is not only in the objects that we can see,
Art can be in form, what makes us feel free.
Contentment can be found in a gentle summer rain,
Contentment walks with us on a beautiful country lane,
Contentment is stored in the fond memories we retain,
Contentment can be found in all that the Gods ordain.
And all this peace and joy exists here in our earthly domain !
