Happy notes from an old guitar
Orange honey in an old mason jar
Happy lights dance across the lawn
Turtledoves roost and chickens yawn.
Happy feet dangle from the porch
Flashlight swings like a villager’s torch.
Happy giggles drift to the stars
Kisses stolen in the shadows of cars.
Happy voices, carrying tunes
Tossing stones to scare the loons.
Happy screech as the pillows fly
Time for sleep now, ” Why?,” they cry!
Happy whispers as the lights fade
Dreams come swiftly their minds to invade
Kisses and wishes given away
Happy noise, the gifts of a day.
