The Laughter of Children

by Mark Weinrich

In the fountain
of children’s laughter,
I hear the music
of celebration,
when time is vanquished
in the cannonball splashes
of belly laughs, contagious
giggles, and shrieks of delight.

When this bubbling up almost
calms, a few snorts and snickers 
launch the geyser again. 
I’m drenched in this
brightness of joy, knowing 
how Jesus loves children,
knowing He is probably
laughing with us.
