XXXI. Laughing Song

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream 1 runs laughing by;
When the air does laugh with our merry Wit,2
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it;

When the meadows laugh with lively 3 green,
And the grasshopper 4 laughs in the merry scene,5
When Mary and Susan 6 and Emily 6
With their sweet round mouths sing " Ha, Ha, He!"

When the painted ' birds laugh in the shade,
Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread,
Come live, and be merry, and join with me,
To sing the sweet chorus 8 of " Ha, Ha, He!
WILLIAM BLAKE.

A stream (of water) sometimes has little holes that look like dimples. 2 Or : merriness, mirth, merriment. 3 Full of life, bright. 4 An insect often found in meadows. It hops to a great height. 5 All that we can see. 6 Girls' names. 7 Their colours are bright, as though they were painted. 8 When all join in singing, we call it a chorus.
