Happiness and I Heard God Laughing

Today is Raymond Carver's birthday, short story writer and poet. (1938-88)

His epitaph, from his poem "Late Fragment," reads:
And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.

and just for good measure a little Hafiz ................
