Take and Read

Things are looking up, Sweetheart.

Dear friends and readers who may scan these tomes,
Lay by all sense of prejudiced objection,
My pages bring no virus or infection
Across the threshold of your virtuous homes.
True they can teach you scant perfection
Save laughter's joys--though I confess I find
No theme more welcome to my heart and mind,
As I observe your melancholy fears,
Your gib-cat airs, your saturnine dejection. . . .
Better to write of laughter than of tears,
For laughter is the essence of mankind.

Live Happy!

-Francois Rabelais
