A poignant rendition nicely crafted with clarity of thought and mind. An insightful work of art.

The subject of a person's smile is not really simple, as Blake implies.Most smiles express love and friendliness, but some men deceive with a smile. So true. The frown is always negative and signals rejection or incomprehension, which is annoying and hard to take. It has happened to me countless times. A true smile, however, ends all misery. A great poem.

Most Beautiful poem ever read this earliest morn and that of William Blake, my most favourite poet that now gets the CLASSIC POEM OF THE DAY Honour twice, last year and now CONGRATULATIONS to the Blake family in London UK for this most deserving Prize. I admire his artistic talents in Poetry as well as in Painting-Drawing Art. May William rest in peace. God´s Blessings. Amen.

The subtle and complex intricacies of human attitude is analytically approached and criticised so as to express the various meaningful purposes a single smile

It is a smile that rocks your world the last two stanzas describe indeed. What other smile can upstage that smile that loves, heals and protects and makes the smiled with happy all at once? ! !

Walking through a tight rope of love and hate, smile and frown we seek to reach the end hoping to catch that eternal smile......
