Nice poem, I could see where it was going - until I read "Hungarians and
THEIR women and children" Ugh. Women and children can't be Hungarians?
Only Hungarian men are Hungarians? Couldn't he just as easily have said,
"Hungarians - men, women and children" etc.

"Having food and raiment let us be therewith content." Are these the
essentials for happiness, or just for existence? The answer lies in the
context. It was written down in the first century by a man named Paul to a
younger man named Tim. It's actually in the sixth chapter of the first book
named after Tim in the King James English Bible. It's interesting to look
up. -- Jack

The Des Plaines river is nothing much to look at. The people who lived
around there with me were not famous or overly happy. But Carl Sandburg
knows more than most and put it down so we could feel what most people

I started reading this poem and I thought it was pretty good...I got
confused. I guess he meant that happiness was in being with his children.
Now that I say it, it makes more sense. Good poetry...I love Carl
Sandburg's THE FOG. It's so cool!

I liked this poem because it shows that you can't explain happiness. It's
whatever makes you feel good. You can ask a teacher of life what happiness
is and their response could be totally different from what one of their
students might say. Happiness is usually the simple things like being
outside with your women and children playing the accordian.
