When daisies pied and violets blue And mayflowers all silver-white, When cuckoo-buds burst out first yellow hue, Do paint the meadows with your choice of pursue. My friends, the things I do admire In a good life be these, I find: The work decent, efforts spent without pain, The leisure plenty, is squandered without shame, The fruitful garden, peaceful heaven your quiet mind. The loving friends, no grudge, no strife, No charge of rules nor reserve, Two cups of warm latte, best companions of long afternoon hearty whims and chats; A fit body where youthful spirit alive, Is without disease the healthy life, And a warm household of continual love. The diet delights, no dainty fare; True wisdom joined with simple layer; The dawn awakens with beaming gale, The night discharges of all might care, Where life’s sweet wine is never sterile. A truthful husband, less of pride, The faithful wife, without debate, Such beauty, as your gaze glare the candlelight, Such sleeps, as may beguile the fragile night: Comfort the days without moment delay, Content yourself with humble estate, Either offer homemade soups or ready caresses, Together neither we wish death, nor fear his might.
I was inspired to write something after catching up with my dear friend Risa ( who is a beautiful Japanese lady and stunning Jazz dancer). Together, we spent our cozy afternoon in the most uneventful manner and were able to share our hopes and dreams delightfully!
It was pleasurable to reconnect with her before I move away from town…. And I will be catching up with other friends during my remaining time here. I miss them already and wish every one of you (whether my friends in real life or online) a GOOD LIFE ahead! 🥳💕
