Happiest Days

By Edward H. Donnelly

I said to the little children,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And their bright eyes opened wider In innocent amaze.
For their happiness was so perfect,
They did not know it then;
"Oh, no," they said, "there'll be happier days
When we are women and men."

I said to the youth and maiden,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And into their sparkling eyes there crept
A dreamy, far-off gaze;
And their hands sought one another,
And their cheeks flushed rosy red;
" Oh, no," they said, " there'll be happier days
For us when we are wed."

I said to the man and woman,
"You are living your happiest days,"
As they laughingly watched together
Their baby's cunning ways.
"These days are days of labor.
They can hardly be our best;
There'll be happier days when the children are grown,
And we have earned our rest."

I said to the aged couple,
"You are living your happiest days,"
Your children do you honor,
You have won success and praise.
" With a peaceful look they answered,
"God is good to us, that's true: But we think there are happier days for us
In the life we're going to."

A trip to the beach clearly means tanning your skin. However, it is important to ensure that you get a good sunblock that protects you from the harmful rays of the sun. You may keep sin protection in multiple forms such as sun protection creams, powders, and even sprays. Sprays will ensure that your legs and arms stay protected without the added effort of massaging every product into your skin. Furthermore, you could also use powders for retouching up on the skin as reapplying sunblock is extremely crucial.

Furthermore, you may take along water-protectant bags where you can store your phone while playing with the water. Many people complain that their phones stop working after a beach trip. This hack works like a charm. Moreover, you could also get sun protection caps that will help you to avoid any UV rays that may damage your skin. Not only this keeps some mats with you. You can always spread that and enjoy some sunbathing. Furthermore, keep a bag for your wet swimsuit. This will help you to get rid of wet clothes without much hassle. You may also keep deodorants and perfumes to ensure that any bad odors are instantly taken care of. Furthermore, water will make you tired. Always carry some extra food snacks that you can munch over and do not forget water. Stay hydrated.
