P.S from Joy
To be people is simple enough,
Lift your lunch pail.
Whisper good words to one another.
Keep the left hand a secret from the right.
Do not find nature foreign.
Love what is plain.
Be gentle to the pain that is given.
Crave being hungry.
Suspect that God exists
and know that the demons are daily.
Gather in solitude, stray from loneliness.
Give others the victory, but share the defeat
And long for your lover even after the wedding bells have settled.
