Home and Happiness

Home and Happiness

A Poem by Abdul Aziz

The beads of sweat upon the worker's brow,

The hope his heart has heaved upon his head

That life may love his children as they grow,

And on the right path they may gently tread;

 

The smile upon the mother's gentle face,

Despite the frugal means surrounding her,

For Providence has gifted her His Grace

And mercy of the kind that grants succour;

 

The laughter in the children's little hearts

That knows not class or rank or worldly wealth;

That mirthful play that bids rancour depart,

And binds the home in peace and perfect health;

 

'Tis not in tricksters' cards or in their sleeves,

But here at home that magic lives and breathes.

A wonderful, heartfelt, heartwarming poem. Home and family provide the greatest comfort and are extremely essential, and I believe what you've penned is truly remarkable and evocative of the comfy, warm family life. Though they may not be the wealthiest people, they still possess the foremost wealth of love and affection. It's a pity there's no rating of a million.

Thank you very much for the kind words Tom
I think this is beautiful, embodying what all loving parents should desire for their children: love and happiness. This is what makes a happy home.

Your words wind soft and gentle, as a turban of mist around the mountain, that our hearts might reach the heights of your delicate dream.

You're welcome, Abdul. It really is a beautiful poem- a heartscape in words.
Happiness and love are the most important wealth a family can possess. Your scenes of contentment filled with laughter and they are delightful to read.

Thank you :)
Abdul,

This is such a beautiful piece. I'm glad I have discovered your writing. This is so heart-felt. All the stanzas are wonderful, the last and the closing couplet are amazing as you capture first the innocence of children which is so wonderful and then the true magic of the love and comfort offered by a loving home.

Loved this one so much. Highest marks. This is among the few pieces I rate highest on WC.

Best regards and respect,

Rick

If only we could capture this truly happy sense of life no matter our circumstances... to be able to find that childlike wonder of the world that exists in the place we call home... It can be whatever we wish it to be, and too often we treat it as commonplace. Lifting write!

Certainly one of my most favorite sonnets here of the Cafe, thought I'd recommend a simpler language ('frugal', 'succour' 'Tis') because the subject matter is pastoral. However, it's not too necessary.

Coincidentally, I've been interested in 'pastoral melancholy' too, these past few months. Let's see where this gets us.

Keep writing.
