I Always Laugh


I asked the flower
you always laugh
why so?

The flower replied,
I dont know how to weep
so, I always laugh

I laugh in hottest sun
I laugh in chilling cold and also
I laugh in valiant storm

I can die, but I can not weep

The answer of flower was surprising

Again I asked
how do you express your grief
the flower laughed loudly
and said
Grief comes to selfish only
we are not selfish
we know only to give
so, grief can not touch us

I appreciated answer of flower.

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
