Pleasure is not happiness

An Ode to the Happy Prince

Stop thy craving,
constantly continued bereaving
engraving thy heart and soul

Let thy mind be quite
off all spite,
enter thyself
find thine eye

Pleasure art temporal
happiness begets divine,
Satiated not contented
happiness kindles a smile

Commoners seek pleasure
while happiness abounds around,
The King seeks gaiety
as frivolity fills his grounds

Endly, the happy prince learnt
Thou art King of thine own Welt,
pleasure and time are but fickle
happiness and joy hammer and sickle

#peace within, happy without
