Seeking For Happiness Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Seeking for happiness we must go slowlyA
The road leads not down avenues of hasteB
But often gently winds through by ways lowlyA
Whose hidden pleasures are serene and chasteB
Seeking for happiness we must take heedC
Of simple joys that are not found in speedC
Eager for noon time's large effulgent splendourD
Too oft we miss the beauty of the dawnE
Which tiptoes by us evanescent tenderD
Its pure delights unrecognised till goneE
Seeking for happiness we needs must careD
For all the little things that make life fairD
Dreaming of future pleasures and achievementsF
We must not let to day starve at our doorD
Nor wait till after losses and bereavementsF
Before we count the riches in our storeD
Seeking for happiness we must prize thisF
Not what will be or was but that which isF
In simple pathways hand in hand with dutyA
With faith and love too ever at her sideG
May happiness be met in all her beautyA
The while we search for her both far and wideG
Seeking for happiness we find the wayH
Doing the things we ought to do each dayH
