Happiness
Carl Sandburg

Chicago Poems
(Available as FREE Ebook on the page linked above)

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 Desplaines river

And I saw a crowd of Hungarians under the trees with
     their women and children and a keg of beer and an
     accordion.
