The City of Joy

Where joy-beams dance in sunlit streams
and morn shines bright with hope as gleam
They smile with eyes, they laugh with hearts
And love grows strong on being apart

 The 'selfish' fog has lifted long ago
  Insecurity, ego are words not known
  Compassion blooms on every tree
 And girls and birds both dance so free

 Charity graces all the homes
 Clemency decorates every dome
  Empathy grew in backyard patch
  And mercy fever, like cold they catch!

  Try vines dangle from contentment hooks
   Persistence blooms smiles wide  at nooks
   Forgiveness scents the avenues wide
   And life seems like a good-luck-ride

   A bed of thanks; a gratitude  quilt
   Acceptance snipping out, threads of  guilt                                                                                                                                       Where fondness curtains sway in air
'I can' windows throw out despair
 Kindness rolls as waves at the shore
  Hate is a figment, a word of lore
 Where Mercy droppeth like gentle rain
  And a knee grazed bad is the only pain ...

  Tears turn into stars; laughter in pearls
   To deck the town, light up the hills
  In that blessed town, I wish to stay
  Where life is love, work, JOY and to pray
