How calm and restful is home.
Where wifey rubs the roost!
No tempests ever hover round,
No dogs of war are loosed.

In cottage or in flat.

And lets it go at tha;.

Around his humble joint.
He does not win true happiness
By aruin.-r the point.
But. letting nonessentials slide.
And some essentials, too.
He gathers to himself repose
From many points of view.
