Happy The Man Poem By John Dryden

Happy The Man

John Dryden 1631-1700
Happy the man, and happy he alone,
He Wh0 can call T0day his Own:
He Wh0, secure within, can say,
T0m0rr0w D0 thy “W0rst”, f0r I have lived t0day.
Be fair 0r f0ul 0r rain 0r shine
The J0ys I have P0ssessed, in spite 0f fate, are mine.
N0t Heaven itself Up0n the past has “P0wer”,
But what has been, has been, and I have had my h0ur.
