“Crying only a little bit is no good.
You must cry until your pillow is soaked.
Then you can jump up
And into the shower
And sing at the top of your lungs.
And if someone calls,
“Hey! what’s going on up there?”
You can tell them:
“Happiness was hiding
in the last tear,
And I wept it!
~ VT Poet-Laureate Galway Kinnell
