Will You Smile? - Poem by Carmela Patterson

If I scrunch my nose like a rabbit, will you smile?
If I cross my eyes while I run a mile, will you smile?
If I purse my lips like a fish, in and out, will you smile?
If I do all three at the same time, will you smile?

If I do summersaults and pole vaults will you laugh?
If I scale a prison wall or dance down the hall, will you laugh?
If I do cartwheels in red high heels, will you laugh?
If I do all of these things together, will you really laugh?

If I hoot and holler and never take a shower will you chuckle?
If I walk on stilts and swing on a trapeze will you chuckle?
If I ride an elephant and cavort with a clown will you tee hee
If I do all of these things, will you laugh again? At me?
