The poetic city: “Far Happier Than I Ought to Be”

“Far Happier Than I Ought To Be ”         
When I think about all the books I will never read, 
all the places I will never see, and all the poems 
I will never write, I wonder if I am far happier
than I ought to be.  
Yet, I glory in the impossibility of doing it all.
Freed from the eternal pursuit of the happiest moment,
I can concentrate all my efforts on what lies before me, 
secure in the knowledge that every particular 
encompasses the whole.
