La Vida Gusta!

Fruit of joy dependably feeds the faithful,

In hungry times, of gloomy sorrow;

Joy ripens yellow, fully satiates, is mirthful,

When a happy day rises on the ‘morrow!

Ebony drift away! Smoke memory; wistful;

Today is Today! I won’t from past borrow

Memory’s mood; Trouble ever wakeful…

Banished by bliss! Saved for a tomorrow;

A sunshine celebration! A grand fiesta!

Laughter melts, smoothes anx’s furrow,

Worries taking a long-deserved siesta!

Merriment ring in rowdy song of cheero!

Toasts all raise in honor of la vida gusta!

Dance away starry night in twirling gyro!

Spin! Sleep… a restfully dreaming artista…

May happy day return, rejoice tomorrow!
