Sunshine and Music

A laugh is just like sunshine. 
It freshens all the day, 
It tips the peak of life with light, 
And drives the clouds away. 
The soul grows glad that hears it 
And feels its courage strong. 
A laugh is just like sunshine 
For cheering folks along. 

A laugh is just like music. 
It lingers in the heart, 
And where its melody is heard 
The ills of life depart; 
And happy thoughts come crowding 
Its joyful notes to greet: 
A laugh is just like music 
For making living sweet.
