LOST LAUGHTER, by            
First Line: Her laughter bloomed along the air
Last Line: And dances like a daffodil.
Subject(s): Laughter

Her laughter bloomed along the air,
Like daffodils in early spring
That down brown vistas gaily bring
Their yellow richness everywhere.

A golden thing! A joy apart!
It lifted flowers above my snow --
Like crocus buds that come and go
The coloured pulse of springtime's heart.

Those cups of gold and purple wine
Have faded with the daffodils:
No music echoes in the hills,
No chalice waits for lips of mine.

With bitter rain that cup would fill
If lifted to May's white despair.
Lost laughter blooms along the air
And dances like a daffodil.
