Don't It feel good

Don’t it feel good When you rise in the morn Sippin’ your cofffee Feeling the sun on your face? Hearin’ doves cooing, sparrows twitterin’ Feelin’ kinda good Bout the whole human race. Don’t it feel good When you give a smile to a stranger And the smile is returned With uninhibited grace? Don’t it feel good To compliment someone With praise as priceless As Chantilly lace? Don’t it feel good To watch the surprise And the warm glow of pride That comes over their face? don’t it feel good To love evvvverybody… The way that Everyone could ? Live your life… the way you know you should And what’d I say? Don’t it feel good… to feel good?
(Yes! The "don't" is intentiona!)

    Don't it feel good and make you feel glad to put smiles on faces that are usually sad. I got so excited by words you put here All I could do is stand up and cheer! ... Great work, my friend, great work... Jake

    Thanks for the nice words Donald, and thanks for taking my comments in the intended way. a lot of poets really get their noses out of joint If you say anything but compliments about their poetry.

    You helped make my day Brandi, If I can make someone smile or even nod their heads in agreement, then I've done what I wanted to do. (and that makes me feel good!) Thanks for your time!

    It was good to read your poem, even though for correct grammar, you should have been writing "Doesn't it feel good?"

    I understand David. After all, how would Elvis Presley sound singing "You Aren't Anything but a Hound Dog"?, or Ringo Starr singing "It Doesn't Come Easily"?

    Thanks for the comment Robert, but I do know my do's and don'ts! The "don't" was intentional as I wanted to give the piece a casual ordinary quality. It's been posted on three other sites for a few years and you're the first to not have seen my intention, but thanks anyway since a lot of unintentional errors slip by us all the time (but honestly, swear to God, this was intentional)
