Life Is Good

Oh, the wild joys of living!
The leaping from rock up to rock.

The strong rending of boughs from the firtree,

the cool silver shock
of the plunge in a pool's living water,

the hunt of the bear,

and the sultriness
showing the lion is couched in his lair.

How good is man's life, the mere living!
How fit to employ
all the heart and the soul and the senses
forever in joy!
-Robert Browning
