SANDY STAR: 2. LAUGHING IT OUT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: He had a whim, and laughed it out
Last Line: A faith in death which made life bolder.
Subject(s): Laughter


He had a whim, and laughed it out
Upon the exit of a chance;
He floundered in a sea of doubt —
If life was real — or just romance.

Sometimes upon his brow would come
A little pucker of defiance;
He totalled in a word the sum
Of all man made of facts and science.

And then a hearty laugh would break,
A reassuring shrug of shoulder;
And we would from his fancy take
A faith in death which made life bolder.
