141. Glossolalia

coy smiles:
I like to think
I am still naïve enough,
not yet jaded;

that I still believe
there is
love and beauty
in the world:

it is horrendous
thinking this is
all there is –

one needs a little
a diversion once
in a while

something to bring us
out of our
sullen moods,

to take us out of our
fatalistic musings,
and remind us

We are young,
there are moments ahead
and years behind us

Let us laugh and
foolish today,
not knowing if they
will ring again
not knowing if we are
being altogether too
for in this life,
we survive,
we enjoy.

One Art, to recognize, must be,
Another Art to Praise.
