Coo-Coo-Clock in Paradise: A Poem
Coo-coo-clock in paradise chiming every hour
reminds us of the saying how every joy must end
how many sunny days may end up with a shower
like every pleasure being just a short-lived god-send.
But wait before you unpack that umbrella
and filled with pessimism abort every fun
heed this advice of an older fella
to rewind your own coo-coo-clock before it's done.
For, nurturing your joy you delay its ending
so don't allow it to just run its course
unless it's about money you are spending
while buying your happiness down to a remorse.
There are no revolving doors at a true paradise
one joy leading to another of a different kind
all you have to do is open your eyes
and see that your coo-coo-clock gets a good rewind.
Then when you hear that well known chime
don't see it as a signal to start packing
but rather as a reminder to have a good time
in paradise of your soul where fun is never lacking.
