For the search of joy, no need to wander far\ Because happiness resides by your side, and\ Beauty is not too far, it’s even nearby.
You discover life’s best in things of interest.\ Curiosity, Delight and something Impressive\ Are three, motives which can take you far.
So, don’t seek bliss in a distant star\ Or look for happiness somewhere excessive\ These three are the best rewards, by far!
Find Happiness, Beauty and Interest, in\ Things and people that are close-by.\ As treasures worth pursuing, they are\ Your companions for a joy-filled Life!
