A Villanelle about how we see things
When a door closes a window opens,
or so the optimist is sure to say.
A pessimist hears this and only grins.

With this the controversy soon begins
and as the door goes slamming shut we pray,
"When a door closes a window opens."

We glance around the room as the world spins
searching for the open window today.
A pessimist hears this and only grins.

Often it is then when our patience thins;
many times our hearts will lead us astray.
When a door closes a window opens.

We have all heard the good guy always wins
and the wolf at the door is held at bay.
A pessimist hears this and only grins.

The optimist and pessimist are twins,
we can't keep them separate, try as we may.
When a door closes a window opens,
a pessimist hears this and only grins.
