April 17th: Happiness

In April 2011 I posted an Edward Hirsch poem about happiness, and then one of my own.  Hirsch is responding to the idea that it's easier to write about misery than about happiness. 

Here are some other poems about happiness:

Naomi Shihab Nye's "So Much Happiness" from April 2016
My "Happiness" from October 2011
"Small Moth," by Sarah Lindsay, from April 2013
And here, from November 2015, is Pablo Neruda on life, and why we shouldn't expect unhappiness to last forever.

Happy Day!
