Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 16697 comments Hi Devon - You have snow falling there too? Where are you?
I see by your profile that you were born in Boston.
Are you still in Boston? Enjoy the snow if you can.

I worry about the weight of the snow on our roof and bushes.
It's been accumulating lately and shows no signs of disappearing.
I keep telling myself "This too shall pass."

"Ah, that's the reason a bird can sing--
On his darkest day he believes in Spring."

-Douglas Malloch

See complete poem below:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You have to believe in happiness,
or happiness never comes.
I know that a bird chirps none the less,
when all he finds is crumbs.

You have to believe the buds will blow,
believe in the grass in days of snow.
That's the reason a bird can sing,
on his darkest day, he believes in spring.

You have to believe in happiness,
it isn't an outward thing.
The Spring never makes the song, I guess,
As much as the song the spring.

Aye, many a heart could find content,
if it saw the joy on the road it went.
The joy ahead when it had to grieve.
For the joy is there-but, you have to believe.

-Douglas Malloch
