  • Sonnet VIII by William Shakespeare

Music to hear, why hear’ st thou music sadly?
Sweets with sweets war not, joy
Delights in joy:
Why lov’st thou that which thus receiv’st not gladly,
Or else receiv’st with pleasure thine annoy?
If the true concord of well-tuned sounds,
By unions married, do offend thine ear,

  • Happiness (Reconsidered) by Judith Viorst

Happiness
Is a clean bill of health from the doctor,
And the kids shouldn’t move back home for
More than a year,
And not being audited, overdrawn, in Wilkes-Barre,
In a lawsuit or in traction.

Happiness
Is falling asleep without Valium,
And having two breasts to put in my brassiere,
And not (yet) needing to get my blood pressure lowered,
My eyelids raised or a second opinion.

And on Saturday nights
When my husband and I have rented
Something with Fred Astaire for the VCR,
And we’re sitting around in our robes discussing,
The state of the world, back exercises, our Keoghs,
And Whether to fix the transmission or buy a new car,
And we’re eating a pint of rum-raisin ice cream
On the grounds that
Tomorrow we’re starting a diet of fish, fruit and grain,
And my dad’s in Miami sating a very nice widow,
And no one we love is in serious trouble or pain,
And our bringing-up-baby days are far behind us,
But our senior-citizen days have not begun,
It’s not what I called happiness
When I was twenty-one,
But it’s what I called happiness
When I was twenty-one,
But it’s turning out to be
What happiness is.

Thomas Salzano
  • The Characters of a Happy Life

How happy is he born or taught,
That serveth, not another’s will:
Whose armor is his honest thought,
And simple truth his highest skill:

Whose
Passions not his masters are:
Whose soul is still prepar’d for death
United unto the world with care
Of princes’ grace or vulgar breath;

Who envies none whom chance doth raise,
Or vice; who never understood
The deepest wounds are given by prise,
By rule of state, but not of good:

Who hath his life from rumours freed;
Whose conscience is his strong retreat;
Whose state can neither flatterers feed,
Nor ruins make accusers great;

Who God doth late and early pray,
More of his grace than goods to send,
And entertains the harmless day
With a well-chosen book or friend.

This man is free from servile bands
Of hope to rise or fear to fall;
Lord of himself, though not of lands;
And having nothing, yet hath all. 

  • Better Days will Come, Just Wait for the Sun by Lisa Marks

When everything’s darkness
And you feel so alone,
When the rain doen’t stop
And you can’t make it home,
When it feels all is lost
And you just want to run,
It can’t rain forever.
Just wait for the sun.

When family is pain,
When friends can’t be found,
When you just want to scream
But you can’t find the sound,
When it’s all your fault,
And you feel like your’re done,
Just wait for the sun.
The sunshine will come.

The storm always passes.
It won’t last forever.
The rain always stops and gives way to good weather.
The brightest and warmest of days still to come.
Please wait for the sun.
The sunshine will come.

People who need you,
People who still love you
Can warm up your soul like the sunshine above you.
You’re never alone,
No matter what’s done.
Wait for the sun.

Just wait for the sun.
Dark clouds always pass.
I promise you, hun.
We’re all waiting with you.
Just wait for the sun.
