H is for Happiness - Mrs. Denise Nesbitt's abc-Wednesday, round 7 - H



I am participating in Mrs. Denise Nesbitt's wonderful alphabet-theme-challenge, abc-Wednesday, Round 7. This week's letter is 'H'. My choice of H-word is 'Happiness', something that we are not always aware of that we have, until we lose it.


Happiness is in your hand,
As a pretty rock found in the sand,
Or sending bubbles to Wonderland.

Happiness is
children's laughter,
Tiny flowers and running faster,
Fairy tales, so ever after.

Happiness is in your hand,
As two sets of footprints in the sand,
Come, make me happy, take my hand!
------


Thanks for visiting!
Best wishes,
Anna

P.S.

This is my Swedish version/translation. (Now it's an L-word!):
------

Lyckan ligger i din hand,
Vacker som en sten funnen i sand,
Eller bubblor sända till Samarkand.

Lyckan klingar med barnens skratt,
Lyser i ögonen på min katt,
Eller ligger och lurar i en sagoskatt

Lyckan ligger i din hand
Som två par fotspår tryckt i sand
Kom, gör mig lycklig. Tag min hand!

------

Det er virkelig et sannhetsord - vi vet ikke alltid hvor godt vi har det, og den illustrasjonen var perfekt!

PS Takk for de koselig kommentarene - de kom frem begge to :-)

Happiness is a great choice for H day. And the lovely girl looks happy blowing her bubbles.

Happiness is to be found in your beautiful photo and in your poem! Thank you for sharing it. We don't realise how happy we are, living in a free country with kind neighbours and always a roof over our heads, always enough food on the table. Let us share happiness and peace!

You can see the happiness in her eyes. If I could see yours I know I would see it there also. Having her has to bring you great happiness.

Happyiness runs in a circular motion, Donovan sang. I think he was right.

We all had the most fun playing with bubbles as a kid, I'm still glad the kids nowadays have a chance to play with the bubbles too, perfect getaway from the electronic games they usually are stuck with!
