Laughing Song

  &   | February 04,2013 04:22 pm IST

   When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy
   And the dimpling stream runs laughing by,
                     When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
                     And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.
   When the meadows laugh with lively green
   And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene,
                    When Mary and Susan and Emily,
                    With their sweet round mouths sing Ha, Ha, He.
   When the painted birds laugh in the shade
   Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread
                    Come live & be merry and join with me,
                    To sing the sweet chorus of Ha, Ha, He.
