Howdy For M'Lady Mary Gordley - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

If you should catch a passing smile.
Then wear it for a little while
before you pass it on again.
You cannot lose you always gain.
For smiles are most transferable.
Most everyone is capable
of giving and receiving smiles
in many forms and many styles.
They take less effort than a frown
and lift you up if you feel down.
Surprise a stranger with a grin
a gesture that’s born deep within.
Strangers are friends you have not met.
A smile’s something they won’t forget
