Treasure Island

Smile, Smile, Smile


A smile will pick you up
When you are down.
It’ll make you feel better—
Turn your day around.
So get yourself a smile,
And get rid of the frown.
Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile at the sky,
Smile at the sun.
Smile at the flowers
Just for fun.
Smile if you’re dragging
Or on the run.
Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile when you’re happy
And when you are sad.
Smile when you’re grumpy,
It’ll make you feel glad.
It could be the best day
You’ve ever had
If you Smile. Smile. Smile.

Smile at the sky,
Smile at the sun.
Smile at the flowers
Just for fun.
Smile if you’re dragging
Or on the run.
Smile. Smile. Smile.
Do yourself a favor and smile

Poet's Notes about The Poem

When in pain or disappointment, by habit, many times, I find that the first thing I do is frown. But then, I quickly remind myself to smile. And I feel much better. It really works.

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;
