Pretty Smiles "Wanted"; Poem, Poll, and Joe McElderry on YouTube -Smile!


I have seen your pretty smiles

The ones so real and free

They gather near into a pile

As if they’re meant for me

Innocent SMILE Poll

Would you spread the contagion of an HONEST smile today, without expectation of reward?

  • Yes, I'm happy to do so everyday
  • No, I don't think so - I don't like being the first one to smile
  • I'll have to ask permission first. Unfortunately jealousy frightens me
See results without voting

And surely as I treasure these

As gold or something fine

I ponder how that I may please

And thank you for this time

Now, may I learn to listen

And feel what you may say

Perchance not soil but glisten

To understand your way

As moments pass between us

Some near, and some too far

Some anger, and some mean fuss

Must not, our trust ajar

For we have smiled together

And prithee may we stay

Let storm nor feverous weather

Blow my pile away

peachpurple, I'm sure that you really do have a lovely smile, as these things can be experienced with more than just the eyes, even with an honest (therefore natural) transcendence "through" the eyes.

Thank you for commenting on my hub and I'm sorry for the delay to respond, as I have not been active on HubPages recently - probably because I haven't made (received) a red cent yet for my many periodic years of writing. Your hubs however can be more popular because we all need some regular good cooking!!!
