A Smile for You...

Breaking to pieces me a play thing
That, you ask me to keep smiling!
Glue applied? Smiling I would remain
If that would make you happy again!

Smile only? I would rather laugh heartly
For no pain now I have;
What I lost to you has been not mine,
My heart only; now you gain also my pain!

    You are a great poet,
    What I lost to you has been not mine,

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
