Poem: A Little Smile of Recognition

Sit a little, won’t you mister.

Pause there and enjoy,

A little smile of recognition,

And perhaps a wistful sigh;

Ah, me – how long you have been gone,

Mister, settle for a while,

Here’s a smile of recognition,

To lift you on this night;

For mister, you might wander,

‘Cross the earth from time to time,

But if your heart were not a pilgrim’s,

From your heart you would not hide;

And though my poets soul,

Might seek to call the heart that’s hidden,

My soul can take a moment to be bidden,

And enjoy a little smile of recognition.
