The Human Smile

Nothing in the world so disarming,
so charming in it's domain.
Across a crowded room or two feet away
it's all the same.
The shortest distance between two people
despite any other claim.
Is for now and will forever be
with no denial the human smile.

    I'll bet you have a nice one, Terry. 60 years or so ago the girls smiled at me once in a while. "Nothing in the world so disarming." You betcha! Congrats on the selection. daver
