Charm of a Sweet Laugh.
There is no natural grace more be
witching than a sweet laugh. Some
times it comes to us in the midst of
care or sorrow or irksome business,
and then we turn away and listen
and hear it ringing like a silver bell,
with power to scare away the ill
spirits of the mind. How much we
owe to that sweet laugh! It turns the
prose of our life into poetry, it flings
showers of sunshine over the dark
some wood in which we are traveling,
it touches with light even our sleep,
which is no more the image of death
but gemmed with dreams that are the
shadows of immortality.
