The Boy With The Sunny Smile

Rating: 5.0

When the winds die down in the shadow of the small town church
To rest their restless screaming spirit
In the arms of melodious bars of the angelic music of „Holy Night".
Then, the whirlwind of wonderful feelings pervades everything,
To disarm sorrow;
My imagination - the balsam of the poet's feather
As the crossroads of many dreams,
Where all hopes stray through the thick forests of temptation,
Offering itself to the feather,
Like the testament of a dreamer of magic dreams,

For the soul's light to find its home.

This is a hard reality of modern world where one section of people are too rich and poors rot in the filth.But there are also people with sunny smile who in spite of their meagre earning spread happiness through love and compassion.

The baby's trembling little hand reached out for it, Probably thinking it was a toy Instead of a piece of paper over which wars are waged, And all the possible and impossible immoral political soul trades... And that fragile child still squeezes the wrinkled banknote, Still thinking it's a toy from which it cannot be removed - -A wonderful poem profused with love and compassion

The boy with the sunny smile, the child of a grim orphanage, The stranger from our neighborhood, who walked all the dark streets, Still treaded tireless along his path of dreams spreading his smile, As if declared to be the light bearer by capricious faith. This is really a beautiful poem.. very very good. tony

walter, i especially like how you lift up the importance of dignity. this poem and your other latest posting remind me of things i say in two of mine, " this homeless man" and " to fly." perhaps you've read them? -glen

A long poem where the poet critically compares all the duality of life. The Sunny smile boy is a wonderful symbol upon which the poem is systematically built to drive home the message therein. Good poem 10+
