One of a kind this cheerful sound
A child's laughter wherever it's found
From the giggling of a baby in a playpen

    Well written Harry. I defy anyone not to laugh along with a child - I've helped raise 5 and have an ocean of laughs in my back catalogue, so to speak. (Report) Reply

    Harry, there isn't anything more gratifying then the laughter of a child
    It calms the nerves and keeps us happy at least for awhile. (Report) Reply

    Same for me.

    This is cheery and makes me cry.

    I feel much better after reading this. Life can be oh so harsh, but one of the things life gave us to relax is children. And no doubt laughter is the cure to anything to everything. Truly a life saver. Just so... true and innocent (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
