Happy Outlook



To have a happy outlook lookout unsullied eyes.
Find once again the flawless
that gives no compromise.

To have a happy outlook lookout unjaded eyes.
Find once again the wonder
that gives grateful surprise.

To have a happy outlook lookout for pleasant news.
Find once again the uplift
that gives civilized views.

To have a happy outlook lookout unbiased eyes.
Find once again the justice
that gives truth no disguise.

To have a happy outlook lookout for pleasant sights.
Find once again the splendor
that gives nature's delights.

To have a happy outlook lookout unhurried eyes.
Find once again the measure
that gives fit exercise.

To have a happy outlook lookout for pleasant souls.
Find once again the treasure
that gives momentous roles.
