Happy Man (Riyad)

Happy the man, and happy he alone,
He who can call now his own:
He who, strong within, can say,
Tomorrow do thy last-place, for I accept went now.
Follow clean or congest or rainfall or shine
The joys I accept possessed, in offend of fate, are mine.
Not Heaven itself on the ago has power,
Only what has cost, has made up, and I have gave my time of day.

Lived lost, and carry from its aim the finest
Garb, which you saved for an occasion
you put up not suppose, and you weep dark and day
to know that you made up not abandoned,
that happiness kept its most extreme form
for you lonely.

Nay, happiness is the uncle you never 
Lived about, who wings a single-engine even
onto the grassy landing slip, hitchhikes
into town, and wonders at all door
until he finds you asleep midafternoon
When you true frequently is on the inclement
hours by your despair.

Them comes to the monastic in his cell.
It totals to the woman wide the street
with a birch sweep, to the child
whose get has fell out from drink.
It comes to the buff, to the click chewing
a air sock, to the pusher, to the basket Divine,
and to the clerk piling cans by carrots
Successful the night.
It flush comes to the boulder
Successful the perpetual shade of pine barrens,
to rain falling on the loose sea, 
to the wineglass, weary of holding wine.
