Smiling is Infectious – A Poem

My daughter introduced me to this poem earlier tonight. In her Senior Infants drama notes, the poem is by Spike Milligan, though in other places online, it’s noted as having an unknown author.

🙂

Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized
I’d passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,
then I realized its worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don’t leave it undetected.
Let’s start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!
