Topic: Laughter (10/18/04)

TITLE: Beware of Laughter

Giggle, guffaw, snicker and smile,
However you do it, just laugh for awhile.
A chuckle is good for the soul, so I hear,
Filling the saddest of hearts up with cheer.

Chortle, titter, grin and tee-hee,
Whatever your style, just do it with glee.
It's sure to lighten your load for awhile,
And maybe help to make someone else smile.

Cackle, chuckle, laugh till you roar,
It's a method that's proven to make your heart soar.
And yet I would warn you to use it with care,
For laughter is catching and quick to ensnare.

It sneaks up so slowly you might let it in
And not even notice till you start to grin.
And then without knowing the how or the why,
You erupt into giggles and tears fill your eyes.

Your friends glances over and starts to tee-hee,
Then others fall prey to the laughter disease.
So when you feel like laughing, use caution, take care,
It makes a heart glad, but it's catching - BEWARE!

Wonderful Rebekah! You write my type of poetry. This was fun and you rounded it all up beautifully at the end. Good work. One tiny typo at the end; it should either be "Your friend glances over ..." or "Your friends glance over ..." but easy to fix. It didn't spoil a thing. Love, Deb

I admire you cleverness and your way with words. A poet, I am definitely not. Keep it up. Hisservant Bobbi

Yes, I previewed the poem and then as I hit "submit" I noticed the typo but it was too late. :) Thanks for the encouraging remarks!
