My partner says she composed this poem about 1982/83 and sent it with other poems to a publishing house in Preston after seeing an advert in Liverpool Echo. They sent them back saying send a postal order for a sum of money which my partner could not afford at the time. She the other poems except the one that is being attributed to other authors. Can anyone advise how she pursue this further

Very mysterious about the author of Smile. I've had it as a document on my computer since 1994, so it was definitely written before then. Whoever was the author, it's a great poem.

This poem was not written by this poet. I know because I wrote it in 2004. I don't see it in his poetry list. I call it " Infectious Smiles" . (Posted by " Good Thinking" on May 3rd,2019, under Spike Milligan's name.)

My favourite Spike poem was: There was a young man from Darjeeling Who got on a bus bound for Ealing A sign on the door Said 'Don't spit on the floor' So he layid back and spat on the ceiling. It appears in one of his books (not certain if he wrote it)

I suspect that the so-called Spike Milligan poem called ‘Smiling’ that gets widely circulated on social media is nothing of the kind. It doesn’t feel Milliganesque at all.

someone kind sent me Spike Milligan`s poem on Smiling Smiling is infectious ou catch it like the flu when someone smiled at me today I started smiling too I walked around the corner and someone saw me grin When he smiled I realized I has passed it on to him I tought about the smile and then realised its worth A single smile like mine Could travel round the earth So if you feel a smile begin Don`t leave it undetected Start an epidemic And get the world infected.
