The SMILE Lady
There's a woman I know that
Edits a poetry publication called SMILE.
She's been doing it for quite awhile.
She prints just about every
Poem, story or letter
From her subscribers, and yet
With each issue the magazine
Seems to get better and better.
She's not doing it for wealth
And she's been battling with her health.
Though I'm just over 40 and she's over 80
To me, she'll always be "SMILE Lady".
Dedicated to Joyce M. Johnson, Editor of Smile
