Poem By Frank O'Hara

In the children's playground in the park by the bay
The joy in the laughter of children at play
A happy sound that does bring joy to my day
Laughter is the best medicine as some like to say
Reminds me of the time when i was a young boy
The games in the school yard at the lunch break i used to enjoy
But only the memories with me now remain
Of something that was but will not be again
The great gift of youth is a wonderful thing
And of it as the saying goes it must have it's fling
On this warm evening in the Fall of the year
The laughter of children a happy sound for to hear
Takes me to my boyhood in Seasons long gone
And only the memories of what was live on.

And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
