in the tickling on mama’s old quilt,
in the romping through soft summer wheat,
in the tossing up and up of raked leaves of the trees,
the Lord laughs and He laughs at all that He sees.

in the sliding of puppies across waxed linoleum floors,
in the splashing of ole Dad in our own swimmin’ hole,
in the swinging higher and higher to touch the blues of the skies,
the Lord laughs and He laughs in these sweetest of sighs.

in the kissing of young girls on their then freckled cheeks,
in the blushing of boys when their first loves they do meet,
in the dancing of old men on their sore aching toes,
the Lord laughs and He laughs at all that He knows.

in the catching of fireflies on a hot August night,
in the exploding of fireworks in cascading delight,
in the spinning of pinwheels and the clowning of clowns,
the Lord laughs and He laughs, “Away with frowns!”

This is such a natural expression of the fresh innocence of life, an anointing smile from God, who has a great sense of humour.

Beautiful job, and I know that God laughs and has a great sense of humor for sure.

God bless~

This is a "happy" poem. I love it.

This is beautiful. You did an exquisite job with the rhyme and the meter. It flowed effortlessly. I also so believe that God has a delightful sense of humor and a deep belly laugh.

I love your poem. God,I'm sure, does have a sense of humour and fun. I'm sure he likes to see us laugh and enjoy life.

I like it! I like the variety of "life" you describe here and I can "see" each scene as you describe it, even in just a few words. Well done.

A good reminder that the Lord takes pleasure in the world of his children :).

God bless!
