A Receipt For Happiness

BEGIN the day with smiling eyes ;
Pursue the day with smiling lips;
Through clouds perceive the smiling skies
Up where the smiling sunbeam trips.

Let smiling thoughts within your mind
Drive gloom and cold despair apart,
And promptings of a genial kind
Keep ever growing in your heart.

Meet trouble with a cheery mien,
Be jovial in the face of care
He routs all mischief from the scene
Who greets it with a jocund air.
