Another World

I have been neither amused nor amusing of late but am resolved to banish this gloom. I have composed a laugh with a fresh quill and when I read it aloud, my spirits will be transformed.
A-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-oh-ho-oh-ho-a-a-a-a-a-a-ha-who-o-o-ah-ha-a-a-a-ha-a-a-a-a-ha-a-a!
Mm-m. That’s a fair composition. N.

Laughing song in D, beginning on A and descending in a triad, before ending first phrase on E (imperfect cadence), then second phrase starts on A and descends stepwise to a long D at end (perfect cadence, of course!)

Oh no, the 1st phrase looks different from my composition:
it should be

Perhaps for the definitive exposition, we should check out Moliere's laugh for his maid in Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme? (It works). Or listen to a kookaburra in a mango tree...personally, I like both your versions, especially mit harmony, though for me, the aspirant 'H' needs an occasional contrast with a simple 'A,' don't you think? X Nan.

Absolutely - in fact, the whole composition on 'a' instead of 'ha' would result in a less breathy vocal quality and brighter, more dramatic tone, as you suggest, just like the kookaburras in my Antipodian paradise.
Danke, meine Freundin.
