Fay Slimm.






I choose to greet life without resentment, 

sleep beside pain with jubilation

and wake to the thrill of Exhilaration.


I want to float in dreams of contentment,   

        walk unknown paths with satisfaction            

and yield to the feeling of Exultation. 


My spirit needs more pleasure-excitement      

           I seek bliss of exhilaration                   

so cast me adrift with Change- to-Elation.

                  We should all "greet life" with your optimism. Springtime brings that feeling to most of us.Yet to "float in dreams of contentment" is one of those inner feelings that exist purely in one's heart. A wonderful and exhilarating poem. - Phil A.
