Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.

Four be the things I’d been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.

Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.

Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.

**Heading back to my great grandmother’s poetry books and the second poet I really loved, Ms. Dorothy Parker. Then I loved her caustic wit. Now I love her thoughts on champagne.**
