Of More Happy People - Poem by Francis Duggan

The praises of laughter we should sing
To so many joy it does bring
To it such a beautiful happy ring
A smile does not cost one a thing
Few wish to know of the one feeling down
A sad faced person of the town
Unsmiling without words to say
And never bids anyone a good day
The happy one does have the inner glow
And is one others wish for to know
Since she or he has happiness for to spare
That with others are happy to share
Of more happy people we do need
Since of joy they do carry the seed.

    A friendly smile and a happy demeanor can certainly change someone's frown into a smile. Sage advice, delivered in such lovely rhyme. (Report)Reply
