let it in
sifting through casement cracks
contentment’s fairy dust settles

let it walk through your open door
and offer tea and a chair at the table
greet it with gentle curiosity
and give it room

let it pour in
like late afternoon sun
sprawling across the quilt
resting even as it brightens

invite happiness’ shy soul
into your life
give it safe harbour
and enjoy its sweet company
