A Song of Happiness
By Muna Lee
From “Songs of Many Moods”

SO many folk are happy folk—
  The feathered folk and furred!
And many a kindly glance I’ve had
  And many a brisk bright word
From squirrel and from gray fieldmouse,        5
  From cardinal and blackbird.
It’s only folk within the wood
  Can know my happiness.
I did not tell my secret, but
  I heard the robins guess;        10
The golden minnow knows it
  Beneath the water-cress.
