The infectious smile

Hi guys and girls and thanks again for visiting my blog.

The next poem isn’t one of mine but I saw it on the @simplypositive Twitter account and I think this poem is amazing so wanted to share it with you. It’s called “The infectious smile” as it is about the power of a smile.

Smiling is infectious

You catch it like flu

When someone smiled at me today.

I started smiling too.

I walked around the corner and someone saw me grin.

When he smiled I had realised that I had passed it onto him.

I thought about the smile then realised its worth.

A single smile like mine could travel round the earth.

So if you feel a smile begin, don’t leave it undetected.

Start an epidemic and get the world infected.






  1. I absolutely love this poem, I think this is the first time be visited your blog but it definitely won’t be the last, love your writing x

  2. I LOVE this! Happiness is an infection I’m more than willing to catch, over and over again! Keep on smiling 😀


  3. It’s funny that I come across this now, my 7 year old sister was reciting it to me yesterday after school. Thanks for sharing.
