"Secretly we're all a little more absurd than we make ourselves out to be"-- J.K. Rowling.

To hear you laugh
Is to see the sun rise
The warm glow of morning
Rising over the dead, grey hills
Its warmth and light
Until it makes those pale hills
With vivacity and exuberance
They have never felt before

To hear you laugh
Is to feel at peace
To know that all is right
In a world
With so many wrongs
To be able to latch
Onto one sane thing
In a constantly shifting
Ocean of thought

To hear you laugh
Is to find daisies in a crypt
To find diamonds buried in mud
To find stars behind the clouds
And music a midst the silence

To hear you laugh
Is to express
What words on paper
Nor silent actions
Could never
It is to find understanding
In a short, vibrant exchange
And to discover a sound,
A pure, untainted beauty
That embraces the soul
And shields it
From the rain

To hear you laugh
Is to experience
One of the most precious
And unalterable joys
Man can experience.
To hear you laugh
Is to know
You are truly in the presence
Of pure life.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

yet another amazing piece of artwork. keep up the good work!
