Poem by Christopher Morley


Secret Laughter


"I had a secret laughter."

                         Walter de la Mare.


There is a secret laughter
That often comes to me,
And though I go about my work
As humble as can be,
There is no prince or prelate
    I envyЧno, not one.
No evil can befall meЧ
    By God, I have a son! 



Christopher Morley
