It's best to take heart in simple joys
Than break heart with big dreams.

How many of us take in the free breeze blow
And not long for the motored resort?

Which of you won't butcher a rooster
When your garden is a pantry of green vegetables?

Which of you would shrink to the woman by your side
When another bewitchingly passes you by?

Which of you would overlook a wad of money
While you vehemently oppose the theory of chance?

Who among you would an intoxicating today
Put off for an uncertain tomorrow?

Today is in your face but tomorrow can betray you:
What's yours can always be yours
But what you don't have might never be yours.
