Joie de Vivre

Joie de Vivre  by Michael Keeling

Not only
the exuberance of life
the school playground
the leap in the air
the tumble of dolphins
the soaring of birds
the whistling boy
the laughing girl
the tug o’ war puppy.

In the land of oppression
it is the essence of rebellion,
the hat peg of hope.
