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."

The world is quite spectacular, with so much to see and do and, unfortunately, so little time. Frequent fliers who daydream of white sand beaches and snorkeling with exotic fish will be overwhelmed by the number of amazing beaches all over the world. It is believed, after all, that there are over 100,000 beaches in the world! Having said that, with so many picturesque, luxury beaches in the world, in can be hard to make a decision about exactly which beach will suit your travel desires for your next beach vacation. Fear not; I have just made this painfully long process much, much shorter. Here’s a list of the most popular and traveler favorite beaches across the planet.
