World Smile Day was on the 4th October and at the weekend I read a social media post that marked World Smile Day with a poem. The poem was written by the late, great Spike Milligan and is called ‘Smiling is Infectious’.
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 realised 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!
Go on smile at someone and see what happens!
