  1. It Doesn't Cost A Cent
    Poet: D. W. Moore

    One of the many essential things
    That make our lives worth while;
    (Tho' it cost the least of all)
    Is a sweet and pleasant smile.

    A smile thus bubbling from the heart
    Of our friends or fellowmen,
    Will drive the clouds of gloom away
    And bring the sunshine again.

    Its magic power, how great and good;
    Like an arrow to the heart 'tis sent;
    It's more valuable than silver or gold,
    Yet it doesn't cost a cent.

  2. With A Smile
    by Byron Pulsifer

    To be of good humor is to be of good cheer each day,
    With a smile and a bounce to each step of the way.
    A smile is one of the few things in life
    That eases tension and settles strife.
    So give freely a smile of yours
    You will find that it will open doors.

  3. So Simple
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    A smile so simple, so easy to do,
    Can brighten the world of someone who is blue!
    All it takes is a thought and time
    It doesn't cost you a dime.

    But that smile may be worth a million bucks
    To someone who is down on their luck
    You never know the impact it will have
    Share a smile - make others glad!

  4. Sweet Smile
    Poet: E. K. Goldsborough, M.D.

    For smiles of tender kindness
    Will dry up a falling tear,
    And loving deed will often fill
    A broken heart with cheer.
    So living and so loving,
    You can gladen with a sweet smile, too.

  5. Easily Given
    Poet: Unknown

    It was only a sunny smile,
    And little it cost in the giving;
    But it scattered the night
    Like morning light,
    And made the day worth living.
    Through life's dull warp a woof it wove,
    In shining colors of light and love.
    And the angels smiled as they watched above.
    Yet little it cost in giving.

    It was only a kindly word,
    And a word that was lightly spoken;
    Yet not in vain.
    For it stilled the pain
    Of a heart that was nearly broken.
    It strengthened a fate beset by fears
    And groping blindly through mists of tears
    For light to brighten the coming years.
    Although it was lightly spoken.

    It was only a helping hand,
    And it seemed of little availing;
    But its clasps were warm,
    And it saved from harm
    A brother whose strength was failing.
    Its touch was tender as angels' wings,
    But it rolled the stone from the hidden springs,
    And pointed the way to higher things,
    Though it seemed of little availing.

    A smile, a word, a touch,
    And each is easily given;
    Yet one may win
    A soul from sin
    Or smooth the way to heaven.
    A smile may lighten a falling heart,
    A word may soften pain's keenest smart,
    A touch may lead us from sin apart —
    How easily each is given!
