Hide-And-Go-Seek

 Next Poem          

Happiness has found me out,
Found me out at last!
O, she 's dogged me round about;
All my hurrying life she 's chased me,
Treading hard and hot she 's raced me,
Almost touched me, all but faced me,--
Here she is, at last!


Wary were you, Happiness!
Patient to the last!
From your thankless business
Laggard Time has come to free you.
Always driven by Fate to flee you,
Never did I think to see you
Track me down at last!
