Smile

You only gave me a smile, My name you did not call, And yet it made my day The brightest day of all.

You are correct ! There is a whole lot of unspoken words, in a smile ;)

What a sweet face, and a sweet thought! Tanksley and J. J. Metcalfe and Helen Steiner Rice are not as popular as they used to be, but their poems have charmed generations, brightened holidays, and filled greeting cards since I can remember.

Thank you for this memory, and such a sweet morning greeting.

I know it's from Way Back Yonder, but wanted you to know it kindled memories for me, and I thank you.
