Price of Happy Smile

Girl by the brook is playing with water

How many tears are hiding
Behind a happy smile?
You can count them looking
In the apples of smiling eyes.

How much pain is making
Face to look more friendly?
You can feel it whole taking
Someone's hand into your hand.


* Painting "The Mirror of Nature" by French artist Léon Bazile Perrault (1832–1908).
