  1. A Face Without A Smile
    Poet Unknown


    Like bread without the spreadin',
    Like a puddin' without sauce,
    Like a mattress without beddin',
    Like a cart without a hoss,
    Like a door without a latchstring,
    Like a fence without a stile,
    Like a dry an' barren creek bed,
    Is a face without a smile!

    Like a house without a dooryard,
    Like a yard without a flower,
    Like a clock without a mainspring,
    That will never tell the hour;
    A thing that sort o' makes yo' 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 fer smiles,
    An' thereby he is blest
    Above the critters of the field,
    The birds an' all the rest;
    He's just a little lower
    Than the angels in the skies.
    An' the reason is that he can smile;
    Therein his glory lies!

    So smile an' don't fergit to smile,
    An' smile, an' smile ag'in;
    Twill help loosen up the cords o' care
    An' ease the weight o' sin ;
    Twill help yo' on the longest road,
    An' cheer yo' mile by mile;
    An' so, whatever is your lot,
    Jes' smile, an' smile, an' smile!



  2. Blessings On The Man
    by George L. Perin


    Blessings on the man who smiles!
    I do not mean the man who smiles for effect,
    Nor the one who smiles when the world smiles,
    I mean the man whose smile is born of an inner radiance,
    The man who smiles when the clouds lower,
    When fortune frowns, when the tides are adverse.
    Such a man not only makes a new world for himself,
    But he multiplies himself an hundred fold
    in the strength and courage of other men.



  3. With A Smile
    Poet: Gerald Massey


    Not by appointment do we meet delight and joy;
    They wait not our expectancy;
    But round some corner in the street of life,
    They, on a sudden, greet us with a smile.
