The High of LifeA Poem by Danny J.H.
a poem to advocate the enjoyment of our mundane
Hearken o great birds do fly
Listen o how that river cries
In the stop shan’t we all die?
The high of life sells no lies
Whisper too your lover’s ear
Tell her of the love you share
Tell her nay, have none fear
The high of life is always there
The open blue sky
The great pastures green
The clouds up a high
The high of life hasn’t been
Yay, alas time we have yet
To stay another hour abed
My dear friends perhaps you’ve not met
The high of life lies ahead
Take out your shiny new old guitar
Throw down your guns, drop them all round
Dance to the twanging of the sitar
Smell the high of life drifting around
Nay say I love thine enemy
Nor say I hate thine friend
It’s been confused in life’s anemone
The high of life shan’t meet end
Listen close now, listen dear
Listen I doth have to say
Listen well for all to hear
The high of life shows you the way
