HAPPINESS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I asked professors who teach the meaning of life to tell
Last Line: And children and a keg of beer and an accordion.
Subject(s): Happiness; Joy; Delight


I asked professors who teach the meaning of life to tell me what is
happiness.
And I went to famous executives who boss the work of thousands of
men.
They all shook their heads and gave me a smile as though I was
trying to fool with them.
And then one Sunday afternoon I wandered out along the Desplaines
river
And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under the trees with their women
and children and a keg of beer and an accordion.
