Remembering Joy

I am a serious person.
Laugher is not my music.
I seek peace, purpose,
forget to value happiness.

At new year I squirmed
when the rabbi extolled
as most holy, most precious
the gift of a happy heart.

Then I remembered earnest eyes
of oldest grand son when he
reminded me that strong words
go down easier with a smile.

I am a serious person.
Laughter is not my music.
I have to work at its tune.
I remember to value happiness.
