Kitty's Laugh

When Kitty laughs it's just the way

That ripples all begin

To spread around a little pool

When you've dropped pebbles in—

At first there's just a tiny ring

And then they come so fast,

Each one more crinkled on the edge

And rounder than the last.

But always, long before they reach

The time for getting through—

When Kitty laughs you somehow find

You're in the ripples too!
