A Lesson Of Smile


My child!
do you know
how to smile?
if you learn to smile
you'll forget to weep
then no apathy
can touch your life
like the flower
does not know to weep
so take the lesson
from a flower
never knew
how to weep.

    Hi Ramesh, would you consider
    calling the poem, A Smile? I would
    break the poem up into stanzas, there
    is a natural break after, how to smile,
    so I would have those first three lines
    as a stanza. Next stanza, next four
    lines. Last stanza, ..just like a flower
    that does not know how to weep. I
    would omit the last four lines as that
    is a repeat of the lesson. (Report) Reply

    You have a way with words Ramesh. You conjure colour and when I read your poems each word has it's own radiance. You have a beautiful heart :) (Report) Reply
