Smile with grace!!!!



SMILE WITH GRACE!
O flower!
You always smile,
When presented
To a beautiful girl
You add further beauty
And smile,
In bridal ceremonies
You rise to the occasion
And smile,
In the gardens of leisure
You add more pleasure
And smile
And when
Presented to shrines
You smile
And when put on
The dead
You smile
That the soul is
At last free
From the pious
Or the indifferent,
Perhaps you have
Complete control
Over your senses
And even when one
Crushes you under his feet
You still smile,
Your smile has the magic
You never know
What is sad or tragic?
You are great
O flower you are simply great………….
