If Smile You

If smile you, sometimes it may lead to quarrels,
An Indian fool may ask,
Why did you on seeing my wife,
What’s the matter,
Asking you in the countryside homes,
Why did you on seeing my young daughter?

Mr.Suspicious may suspect you
As for an affair with his wife
Or his daughter,
Whom commands he to stay indoors

To smile is good, to be so by nature
And it said too,
Keep smiling,
Not laden and speced, serious and moody,
But to smile,
Many may not take in the good sense.

If smile you, the fool may come with a danda
To break your head,
As he may take it
To have smiled on seeing his daughter
Passing by
Or another may charge against looking his wife.

Many may scold you as for smiling
And may not like your light nature
If you keep smiling,
Smile but not always
As you will lose your weight,
They say it so.

If smile you yourself, one may take you
For an abnormal
Or a half-mad fellow,
Another may for an addict.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

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;
