A Happy Face

Poem By David Harris

If you feel a bit gloomy,
put a smile on your face
it will help to cheer you up
and is no disgrace.
Smiling at someone
makes your world a brighter place,
and if they smile back,
you’ll be surprised how good you feel.
Therefore, the advice that
I am giving you is easy,
to feel good within yourself
put on a happy face.

And you know something - even if you're feeling grumpy it is actually still possible to put on a happy face (we actor's do it all the time) and when you do, the inside responds and the happiness actually takes off. When I was in the theatre, we used Stanislavski's 'Magic If'. 'If I was... then what would I do? ' It's the same thing - if I was happy, how would my face look? And bingo! It's there and sooooooooooooo infectious too. I'm sure I've heard that line too - in Bye Bye Birdie. Such a wonderful musical. Such a wonderful song! Thanks for posting this thoroughly cheerful poem. love, Allie xxxx
