Try Smiling

 

Try SmilingWhen the weather suits you not,

Try smiling.

When your coffee isn’t hot.

Try smiling.

When your neighbors don’t do right, Or your relatives all fight,

Sure ‘tis hard, but then you might

Try smiling.

 

Doesn’t change the things of course—

Just smiling.

But it cannot make them worse—

Just smiling.

And it seems to help your case,

Brightens up a gloomy place,

Then, it sort o’ rests your face—

Just smiling.

One of the poem’s in this poetry book that is bookmarked, and marked, and one of the dozens just like it I will be posting.
