Contentment (Poem)

How truly blest is he who knows content!
His life is calm and peaceful, and the light
Of sweetest happiness shines warm and bright
Across his path. His mind is not intent
On what God grants not, nor is his time spent
ln vain complaining, but he finds delight
In Heaven's gifts, and walks with face as bright
And gladsome as the sunlit firmament.
He tastes life's sweetness, but avoids its gall;
He envies no one, nor is he oppressed
With those dull cares and sorrows that befall
The one who murmurs, and that wild unrest
Which makes men's souls dissatisfied can ne'er
Rob him of sleep, nor dim his eyes with care.
