WHEN Margaret laughs the world is gay,
All care is driven far away;
Her hat aslant, with roguish air,
A red carnation in her hair --
True daughter of the merry May.

The rosebuds of a summer's day,
The modest flowers along her way,
All seem to have a grace more fair
When Margaret laughs.

Oh, youth! for her so bright and gay,
Oh, years! that slip so fast away,
Keep her, I pray thee, fresh and fair,
Dainty, bewitching, debonair,
For life is but a holiday
When Margaret laughs.
