Ode to Laughter

I found this little poem in an old book of my mother’s called Philosopher’s Notebook. It was compiled by Monty Blandford and published by Hallcraft Publishing Company in 1952.

ODE TO LAUGHTER

A laugh is just like sunshine,

It freshens all the day;

It tips the peaks of life with light,

And drives the clouds away.

The soul grows glad that hears it,

And feels its courage strong,

A laugh is just like sunshine

For cheering folks along.

A laugh is just like music,

It lingers in the heart,

And where its melody is heard

The ills of life depart.

And happy thoughts come crowding,

It’s joyful notes to greet,

A laugh is just like music

For making living sweet.

ANON.
