William Blake’s poem dances with joy. A dramatic piano, a lofty flute, along with a rhythmic tambourine, join the voices to bring this text to brilliant life. A children’s chorus could partake singing the unison laughing theme that opens the piece and reoccurs along the way amidst the story telling of the SATB choir. READ THE POEM

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it;
when the meadows laugh with lively green,
And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene,
When Mary and Susan and Emily
With their sweet round mouths sing “Ha, ha he!”
When the painted birds laugh in the shade,
Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread:
Come live, and be merry, and join with me,
To sing the sweet chorus of “Ha, ha, he!”
