worldly wise

 Worry not – for I am here my love
 Be sad if one need be
 Yet do not yearn
 For yearning sobers any man
 From the bluest sea the bluer sky
 And Earth shall always soil
 When it’s brown
  
 Problematic moments come and go
 So go – away – be gone
 No more a star but just a wretch
 Can anyone disturb the fickle sound of don’t
 Only to discern a hollow sense
 Of what is wrong and who shall be
 Go – away – be gone – afar and now
  
 Happy is a simpleton – not I
 Be happy and be ignorant
 Of what the world holds dear in little hands – 
 Choices and companions
 And the art of true belief
 If e’er proven to be worthy of itself
 Accept but once one knows
 Simple will be shown to be a lurgy
 And a lark so woebegone
  
 What of Earth and worldly view – 
 Methinks we think too much or not at all
 Surrender to the other means
 Of worry minus problem – 
 Pray be pleased
 And when we fall we fall for goodness
 Ne’er for bad – 
 For bad be but a better side of poor
 And sad and sadness pray for all
  
 So in the end and then before
 Like now – we worry not
 False pleasure dies an ugly death at sea
 But not for me – 
 For pleasure in companionship be true
 A pleasure shared with me and ne’er undue
 As sorrow’s loss is gain
 Which I had earned
 And pleasure on this Earth
 Is yes well-learned
  
 Well-learned to be from
 Darkest sight of grey
 When cloud will shed a tear and cry
 Until the water drowns a crowd
 A crowd that goes away before
 It clusters like a group
 And sheds – despairs 
 Of story told
  
 An essence of history foretold
 But not to last
 As history reworked is e’er too fast to lose
 Any sense of wisdom or of sage
 It ne’er do well in this fine age
  
 So what of what I say – 
 Make any sense or garbled so
  
 Philosophise writings long ago revised
 What meaning means the most
 In your fair eyes 
 The truth – the truth 
 Devoid of any lies my love – 
 My love is all you need
 (it’s no surprise)

 My love is all you need
 For worldly wise.
