Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight

What is happiness to me?
Fragile, tiny, furtive things,
Gossamers, with fairy wings
Held with my heart a breath,
Just a memory, until death.

What is happiness, who knows?
Whence it comes and where it goes,
Just a whispering, so brief,
Like the falling of a leaf.
