From the moment he woke, to the moment he slept
The scowl on his face, was deeply etched.
He frowned at the sun shining down,
His mother too was met with a frown.
His parents were distraught,
That efforts to make him smile, came to nought
And promised they would go the extra mile,
Just to make their boy smile.
They thought and talked but could think of nothing
To lift the boy’s spirits ever more were flagging,
They gave him toys, hired a clown,
But his face, still wore a frown.
Granny was brought onto the scene,
A problem like this in the past, she’d seen,
After a whisper with laughter and tears
A grin spread on his face from ear to ear.
Ever after that, he smiled and smiled
Happiness in his town, he styled.
