Walking down this lane
A child I saw,
Of cheerful smile
Threw at me an apple core.
I laughed to witness such play
I caught it in my hand,
As she hid behind the hedge
I thought such mischief just grand.
Then I heard a voice say
I didn't know you were there,
Sorry mister big nose
And laughed without a care.
She laughed so much
It was contagious,
I couldn't help but roar myself
She was a lot of fun and so outrageous.
I had not laughed so much in ages
This child was such a delightful treasure,
Just through her cheeky ways and laugh
She had given me this day so much pleasure.
As I went on my way along the lane
I couldn't help but laugh out loud,
Bye mister big nose she shouted
She would do well playing to a crowd.
There is always a lesson to be learnt
Laughter is a medicine you can't buy,
That child brought that home to me
Because a child's honesty can never lie.
