The Whistler

A poem for kids and adults by Nixon Waterman to remind us that our attitude determines our happiness. And if we all approached life with a more positve attitude the world would be a better place.



The Whistler
by Nixon Waterman


A boy I know who's never sad,
And come what may he's always glad
Though trouble comes, he sings a merry lay,
So blithe and happy gladdens all the day
With his "Heigh-ho! laughing as I go,"
He whistles care away.

If all the world were like this boy,
We'd banish cares that now annoy; -
O never let a trouble come to stay,
So let us laugh our troubles all away
With a "Heigh-ho! laughing as we go."
We'll whistle the care away.
