World Smile Day

Keith Oliver

Recently I was asked to speak at a virtual cafe organised monthly by StAn’s cafe based in London and supported by volunteers including some from the Museum of London. The October event was on Saturday 17 October and focused around World Smile Day. I was delighted that my friend Jess Shaw again agreed to co-present with me on the zoom and for the occasion I wrote this poem especially. I hope it achieves for you what it managed to for those who accessed it via StAn’s cafe either on the day or subsequently.


Laugh and smile

Stay awhile


Grin a smile

Improves your profile


Beam some smiles

Travels for miles


Flash a smile

Admire your style


Grin a smile

To reconcile


Twinkle a smile

Like the bride down the aisle


Chuckle a smile

Once in a while


Humour with a smile

Never fails to beguile


Love with a smile

Makes living worthwhile
