Happiness - Please Critique

Posted to Action Poetry




Over the rivers
and over the trees
Over the mountains
and over the seas.

Happiness floats
through the air,
dodging the trees
with ever so much care.
It sticks to the creatures
who are in need
and passes by those
who are taken by greed.
It grabs hold of the good
and sneaks by the bad
it tickles the children
who are rarely ever sad.
Finally it reaches
the place where you are;
reading, singing,
or driving in a car.
It stops and examines
how you took your day
and then decides that
you did it the right way.
In through your eyes
followed by nose
into your fingers
and lastly your toes.
You feel the greatness
and you are relieved.
For what you’ve done,
gave you the best gift to be received.

Over the rivers
and over the trees
Over the mountains
and over the seas.
