Worry Less Smile More
The Town of Don't You Worry
Poet: L. J. Bartlett
There's a town called Don't-You-Worry,
On the banks of River Smile,
Where the Cheer-Up and Be-Happy,
Blossoms sweetly all the while.
Where the Never-Grumble flower,
Blooms beside the fragrant Try,
And the Never-Give-Up and Patience
Point their faces lo the sky.
In the Valley of Contentment,
In the province of I-will,
You will find this lovely city,
At the foot of No-Fret hill,
There are thoroughfares delightful
In this very charming town,
And on every side are shade trees
Named the Very-Seldom-Frown.
Rustic benches, quite enticing,
You'll find scattered here and there;
And to each a vine is clinging
Called the Frequent-Emest Prayer.
Everybody there is happy.
And is singing all the while,
In the town of Don't You Worry,
On the banks of River Smile.
Worry And Fret
Worry and Fret were two little men
That knocked at my door again and again.
"O pray let us in, but to tarry a night,
And we will be off with the dawning of light."
At last, moved to pity, I opened the door
To shelter these travelers, hungry and poor;
But when on the morrow I bade them "Adieu."
They said, quite unmoved, "We'll tarry with you."
And, deaf to entreaty and callous to threat.
These troublesome guests abide with me yet.
by Lana M.H. Wilder
Give Earth the biggest smile you've got.
See every glimmer of light in the scariest, darkest sky.
And when people think you're crazy,
Then you know you've accomplished something
Very few dare to try.
by Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
More smiling, less worrying.
More compassion, less judgment.
More blessed, less stressed.
More love, less hate.
A Smile And A Frown
Poet: Emma C. Dowd
Only a frown! Yet it pressed a sting
Into the day which had been so glad;
The red rose turned to a scentless thing:
The bird-song ceased with discordant ring;
And a heart was heavy and sad.
Only a smile! yet it cast a spell
Over the sky which had been so gray;
The rain made music wherever it fell;
The wind sang the song of the marriage-bell,
And a heart was light and gay.
