Blijnieuws_Aloha_from_Hawaii_(3263865354) 40In een overvolle trein had ik een leuke ontmoeting met een jonge vrouw, die me dit (BlijNieuws)gedichtje gaf, in haast geschreven:

just a smile
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 realized I’d passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile, then realized its worth
a single smile just like mine could travel ’round the earth
so if you feel a smile begins don’t leave it undetected
let’s start an epidemic quick and get the world infected!
