Poem - Smile

Mahima Gazula
06/02/2003

SMILE

A smile is like the river Nile
it stretches more than a mile
A benign smile is a spectacular beauty
make it an everyday duty

A smile is glorious in every way
so hold onto a smile for it may fade away
Whoever cared about different races
so long as all have smiling faces

A smile sows soothing seeds
which blossoms as good deeds
A smile is not SARS
so spread it near and far

(Mahima is 9 years old and a fourth grader at Fairgrounds Elementary School, Nashua, NH. She was a student counsellor in grade two and is a peer mediator. She was awarded the NH teachers of Mathematics award in the year 2002. Mahima developed this flare for writing poetry at the age of 5. Her other interests include swimming, playing the violin, reading mystery books, Indian Classical music and Dance. In her opinion a SMILE is a priceless possession and can make a big difference in our everyday lives. When she saw people on TV wearing masks for SARS, that's what inspired her to write this poem. )
