A Smile Was All (poem)

Updated on September 10, 2013

A smile was all which she had brought

To capture heart which she had sought

And to this all her soul was caught

And to this all was every thought


This dream come true her journey’s end

The one who would her journeys tend

To win his love her hopes ascend

To win his love and worlds transcend


Then to her smile his gaze was brought

For her attention he did tend

With his attention dreams ascend

Her Joy became his only thought


He vowed to love her till the end

And to this end her hand he sought

But to this end her fate was caught

Another dream she must transcend


For her to win his every thought

She made a deal and soul was caught

To every end which she had sought

A smile was all which she had brought

      A smile can be so subtle and yet sometimes so false

      Oh, yes! We should be careful what we wish for!

      (And, always take traveler's checks, as you never know when you might need them!)

      Martin, you brought it all to a shocking end with that last stanza.

      Great piece of work.
