Happiness - Poem by Louise Gluck

A man and a woman lie on a white bed.
It is morning. I think
Soon they will waken.
On the bedside table is a vase
of lilies; sunlight
pools in their throats.
I watch him turn to her
as though to speak her name
but silently, deep in her mouth--
At the window ledge,
once, twice,
a bird calls.
And then she stirs; her body
fills with his breath.

I open my eyes; you are watching me.
Almost over this room
the sun is gliding.
Look at your face, you say,
holding your own close to me
to make a mirror.
How calm you are. And the burning wheel
passes gently over us.

    Calm and content they slept, the peace and freshness of the morning, all but speaks of a wonderful night, of accomplishment. Marvellous.
    Thanks for sharing.

Happiness Poems

  1. Happiness (Reconsidered)

    Happiness Is a clean bill of health from the doctor, And the kids shouldn't move back home for more than a year, And not being audited, overdrawn, in Wilkes-Barre, in a lawsuit or in traction. Happiness Is falling asleep without Valium, And having two breasts to put in my brassiere, And not (yet) needing to get my blood pressure lowered, my eyelids raised or a second opinion. And on Saturday nights When my husband and I have rented Something with Fred Astaire for the VCR, And we're sitting around in our robes discussing, The state of the world, back exercises, our Keoghs, And whether to fix the transmission or buy a new car, And we're eating a pint of rum-raisin ice cream on the grounds that Tomorrow we're starting a diet of fish, fruit and grain, And my dad's in Miami dating a very nice widow, And no one we love is in serious trouble or pain, And our bringing-up-baby days are far behind us, But our senior-citizen days have not begun, It's not what I called happiness When I was twenty-one, But it's turning out to be What happiness is.

  2. Happiness

    Happiness is silent, or speaks equivocally for friends, Grief is explicit and her song never ends, Happiness is like England, and will not state a case, Grief, like Guilt, rushes in and talks apace.

  3. Happiness

    John had Great Big Waterproof Boots on; John had a Great Big Waterproof Hat; John had a Great Big Waterproof Mackintosh -- And that (Said John) Is That.

  4. Happiness

    Happiness perhaps once had features Of a single, compact whole, But countless are the craving creatures Praying God some bliss to dole. He therefore must have sadly shattered Happiness into many a bit And had the pieces widely scattered To give all eyes a glimpse of it. So, those who wish to own a share Should not think it strain or stress To search around, with utmost care, Some dazzling fragments to possess. A particle here, a particle there, To your happy lot may fall; Not any time, not anywhere, can you ever find them all. However long, however far- Spreading your quest may be, Too many are, too tiny are The splinters all for you to see. In common can you best enjoy Whatever happiness comes your way. With others if you share your joy, It well may stage a longer stay. Give your neighbour just a half And see your pleasure growig double: Make your neighbour smile or laugh; You yourself with glee will bubble.
