Happiness
by Carl  Sandburg

I asked professors who teach the meaning of life to tell me,
	what is happiness.
And I went to famous executives who boss the work of thousands
	of men.
They all shook their heads and gave me a smile, as though I
	was trying to fool with them.
And then one Sunday afternoon I wandered out along the Des Plaines
	River
And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under the trees with their
	women and children and a keg of beer and an accordion.
