YOU CAN SMILE

Like a bread without the spreading

Like a pudding without sauce

Like a mattress without a bedding

Like a cart without a horse

Like a door without a latchstring

Like a fence without a stile

Like a dry and barren cheek

Is the face, without a smile!

 

Like a house without dooryard

Like a yard without flower

Like a clock without mainspring

That will never tell the hour

A thing that sort and makes you feel

A hunger all the while

Oh, the saddest sight that ever was

Is a face without a smile!

 

The face of man was built for smiles,

And thereby he is blest

 

Above the critters of the field

The birds and all the rest;

He’s just a little lover

Then the angels in the skies

And the reason is that he can smile

Therein his glory lies!
