POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 January 1848
POETRY. THE HAPPY MAN. Happy the man whose golden hoard Surpasses wit and learning ; Whose beef and pudding grace his board, Without the plague of earning Who gets his bread exempt from strife, No cares his bosom burning ; And butter from the cream of life, By other people's churning — Who takes no trouble, feels no toil ; Thinks empty purse no sorrow, Since, like the widow's cruse of oil, It fills again to-morrow — Who's ever ready to befriend The wandering child of sorrow ; And from his well filled purse to lend To him who wants to borrow. How smoothly flows, from day to day, His every pleasant minute, Whose mouth, when he was born, they say, 1 A silver spoon had in it !' Milk, honey, oil, and wine, and corn Indelibly will score him A lucky wight, whose dad was born By any chance before him. But mark how less at ease are they, For better fortune yearning, Who eat their scanty meal per day, By needy penny turning. The grudging world they strive to please Ungraceously returning A mo...
