John Vance Cheney (Джон Ванс Чини)


The Happiest Heart


Who drives the horses of the sun
  Shall lord it but a day;
Better the lowly deed were done,
  And kept the humble way.

The rust will find the sword of fame,
  The dust will hide the crown;
Ay, none shall nail so high his name
  Time will not tear it down.

The happiest heart that ever beat
  Was in some quiet breast
That found the common daylight sweet,
  And left to Heaven the rest.



John Vance Cheney's other poems:
  1. Coyote
  2. Wherever a Green Blade Looks up
  3. Somewhere
  4. The Parting of Ilmar and Haadin
  5. One
