Smile :: A Poem

SMILE :)
SMILE :)

Yet another crunchy munchy poem from my yesteryears. Written in October 1997.


A smile is a pretty flower

It’s fragrance is sweet

A smile is a crunchy biscuit

You can munch it when you please

A smile is the blue sky

It is vaster than the seas...


A smile is evergreen music

It is soothing to your heart

A smile is mischievous humor

But sadness when you part

A smile is an arched picture

Often displayed on a chart...


A smile is a happy jingle

That I hum along the way

A smile among my friends I mingle

It brightens my tasks of the day

A smiles motivates my actions

And makes me happy and gay...


A smile is what I desire

As a gift to my hungry soul

A smile so honest and sincere

To spread it is my goal

A smile when you enlarge it

Would certainly look like a hole...


A smile is in my poetry

It is where it should be not

A smile if not acknowledged

Could make a pal angry and hot

A smile is on my face

All ready for a shot!!


Please feel free to leave me any comments. Thanks for your time =)

I'm smiling. Wish you could see it. I love this because smiling is one of my favorite things to do--laugh lines and all.

Thanks!

....well a smile is what I had after reading this ......

and your writing is so pure and innocent as if it were written from a child's perspective - high praise indeed - because it's the child (still) inside of us which allows us to marvel at the world (and people) around us ......
