Happiness

John had
Great Big
Waterproof
Boots on;
John had a
Great Big
Waterproof
Hat;
John had a
Great Big
Waterproof
Mackintosh --
And that
(Said John)
Is
That.

For innocent minds, every simple opportunity or gain is matter of joy. That is the pleasure of contented soul. Thanks for sharing
I think of this poem when I remember my daughter, age 3, refusing to remove her new Mary Jane shoes when she went to bed, the expression on my grandson's face, age 4, when he put on his new cowboy vest. I think of this poem often when something small - an unexpected kindness, a generous word - makes me happy.
