Sonnet to a Smile






THAT'S the idea! Elevate your attitude;
THE situation's really not so bad.
TIME after time when lonesome blues intrude
YOU do yourself no favours looking sad.
MUST be something in our human make-up,
KEEP it reined in, friend...contagion's rife.
ON classifying of your half-filled cup,
TRYING to count the blessings in your sweet life.

SMILE, the world smiles with you, smiling back.
WHAT'S generating all those happy faces ?
THE lift in spirits shows you're right on track,
USE bigger grins on sad-sack basket cases.
OF all God's gifts, i so enjoy a smile,
CRYING... not an option that's worthwhile.

Song lyrics : John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons.
The music for the song was written by Charlie Chaplin.
