The Grave-Digger

 

Once, as I was burying one of my dead selves, the grave-digger came by and said to me, "Of all those who come here to bury, you alone I like." 

Said I, "You please me exceedingly, but why do you like me?" 

"Because," said he, "They come weeping and go weeping -- you only come laughing and go laughing."
