Smile At Me - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Can't you just smile back at me
When I send a smile to you,
Why is it that your lips are tight
And seem so frosty blue,
Can't you let your mouth just raise
Both sides a little bit,
Or is it that my face just doesn't,
In your mind, quite fit.
If you would smile, your face would be
A very handsome one,
And I believe that you and I
Could have a lot of fun,
But until you give a welcome grin,
There's nothing I can do,
Except, when you look across at me,
I'll keep smiling back at you.
