    Mesmerizing....soothing like the dulcet breeze..

    Infant smiles are his own smiles;
    Heaven and earth to peace beguiles.....these lines are awesome

    all bloody specious analyses. seriously you've got to be kidding me why are you even registered on a poem website if that's all you can glean from a poem? Not to mention first place goes to Maya, whose poems are so clear-cut and lacking of subtlety that it bloody hurts (Report) Reply

    A poem about smiles and smiling from the youngest people. Blake can carry an intense feeling of care in his poems, especially this one. Sweet dreams to us all! We are far away from the age of a baby, and we find these people pleasant from Blake. (Report) Reply
