Then Laugh by Bertha Adams Backus
Transcript of Then Laugh by Bertha Adams Backus
Build for yourself a strong box,
fashion each part with care;
When it's strong as your hand can make it,
put all your troubles there;
Hide there all thought of your failures;
and each bitter cup that you guaff;
Lock all your heartaches within it,
Then sit on the lid and laugh.
Tell no one else its contents,
Never its secrets share;
When you've dropped in your care and worry
keep them forever there;
Hide them from sight so completely
That the world will never dream half;
Fasten the strongbox securely-Then sit on
the lid and laugh.
Bertha lived from 1870 till 1956
The Poetry 'then laugh' is her most famous work.
She had published 'then laugh' in "Grit" on August 26, 1931.
het verteld ons over wat we moeten doen met de pijn en het verdriet in ons leven. Laat al het negative weg uit het leven en vervang het door een glimlach.
