Poetry of Kansas

Joy

Oh, life is a beautiful, beautiful thing!
Where gay flowers bloom and glad birds
          sing,
And streams flow ever in musical rhyme,
And the sun to the heavens each day doth climb,
And send his beams from his throne above___
Oh, life is abounding with joy and love!

__Gertrude Crumb Harman
