An optimum optimist

An optimum optimist knows that

Too much optimism blurs vision

An optimum optimist has

Sizzle in the brain, fire in the belly

And the soul of a butterfly

An optimum optimist knows that

A little corner can give happiness

An optimum optimism has clear vision

Knows that no corner can mope away all the unhappiness

An optimum optimist can see

The mysteries of mind

An optimum optimist carries

A raincoat even on a sunny day
