I love to smile sadness away,
The gloomy shroud that clouds the mind
And feel again sweet lightness stay,
Resting awhile and laughter bind.
Why let sorrow splinter the day
Brighter is life when we unwind?
Arise, arise, wipe away tears
It is time to shed baseless fears.
I love to dance without a care,
It feels so good tickling the soul;
A riot of wind in the hair
Hoisted up from a darkened hole.
What sights pulse when the mind can stare
At endless joy in days’ rich bowl?
Ripened fruits wait to be eaten
This wild show cannot be beaten.
