    I find that if I truly want
    to become a better writer,
    then happiness must be my vaunt,
    to bid my heart be lighter.
    There are no prizes for dismay
    or lurid sufferings thus evoked;
    ’tis optimism wins the day,
    and let drama take a joke.
    Art must be like life withal,
    and though the days be serious
    there can be joy before the fall,
    sincere and not delirious
    for tragedy requires loss,
    and God Himself has paid that cost.
