May Farmer Fred Award: House of Happiness

I have read that solitude and cold weather drive people to poetry. Good, another reason to love it here. Poetry has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My parents read nursery rhymes followed by other children's poetry and literature. I grew up enjoying words, singly and in order.
When shooting pictures for a blog post, I occasionally realize that I have nothing to add. The photo says it all. I then begin to search for another author's words to enhance the beauty of what I see on the screen. This one caught Farmer Fred's attention.
The May Farmer Fred Award is presented to:
House of Happiness
Originally published on May 16, 2014

 "Take what God gives, O heart of mine,
And build your house of happiness.
Perchance some have been given more;  
But many have been given less. 
The treasure lying at your feet, 
Whose value you but faintly guess, 
Another builder, looking on, 
Would barter heaven to possess."
