Bluebirds, Old Dogs, and Mollusks

If “Happy the bride that the sun shines on,”
Is a rainy-day wedding not glad?

If I’m “happy as if I had good sense,”
Could I not be a member of MENSA?

If I don’t get my lunch from McDonalds,
Could I still have a “Happy Meal”?

If “Happiness is a warm puppy,”
Is sadness a cold old dog?

If I’m “happy to be here with you,”
Then how will I feel when I leave?

If I’m “happy as the day is long,”
Am I sad when the moon comes out?

If there’s really a “bluebird of happiness,”
What’s the mood of the ravens and crows?

If I am as “happy as a clam,”
Do you think I resemble a mollusk?

If I am not a “happy camper,”
Can I stay in a fine hotel?

If I’m “happy as a pig in the mud,”
Do I need to wash my face?

I have many questions about happiness,
But there’s only one answer for sure.

“HAPPY ARE THE PEOPLE WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD.”


Scripture Reference Psalm 144:15b KJV
