A Baby's Laughter - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Each time I hear a baby's laughter
I feel a tickle in my heart.

I have to stop and listen better
Catching each note of musical art.

Such innocent laugh in joy released,
A soothing balm for a wearied soul.

All earthly worries seem to ease,
A baby's laughter makes me whole.

    cynthia, I LIKE IT. i'm not sure if you meant to type laugh IN joy or laugh IS joy.....or how about innocent joy in laugh released? ? anyway, i got the nice comment from you about my poem ' when wife's in japan'. i tried to send you a private message but the site says you don't accept those. i don't blame you. so here in this comment IS my message: i don't know what transgressive meter is, not having studied the construction of poems (like in a classroom) . i get an idea for a topic and roll with my thoughts, often guided by my quest to usually rhyme and to often be humorous. thanks again for comment. bri (Report) Reply

    Pure and innocent, a baby's laughter powerfully influences our emotions, making us, along with them, laugh with all lightheartedness too. (Report) Reply

    this is so right
    a child's laughter is distressing
    and bringing joy to one's heart

    i like the 'soothing balm for a wearied heart'

    nice poem..i remembered the lines in the poem angelmine

    make it through everytime you are with me! ! !

    yes its true that there laughter can take away all the pains and sufferings in just a minute
