Subject(s): Happiness

In the Kingdom of Bootes,
Whose vast cordon none can tell,
Mirac answers to Arcturus,
"All is well!"
What to them are days and seasons,
Storm and triumph, plague and war --
With their large, serene appointments,
Star for star?
In this handbreadth of the midnight,
These heart-confines where we dwell,
I can hear your spirit answer,
"All is well!"
What to us is night or morrow,
Or the little pause of death,
In the rhythm of joy we measure
Breath by breath?
