A single tear fell to the ground,
As he tried to stifle sound,
Of sniffles that came not from cold,
And in fact, if truth be told,
Would cry out loud, if was alone,
Instead of acting like a stone,
Reached in his pocket as he wept,
For rumpled hanky that he kept,
"I've got a cold," was heard to mutter,
"Or maybe allergies," went on to stutter,
"I'm sure that's true," said wife with smile,
While she giggled all the while,
"I know no reason that a feller,
Would cry because just saw "Old Yeller.""

There is nothing wrong with a good cry!! Men included!!  My famous recent cries would be 'Deep Impact' and "steel Magnolias'.
A good cry refreshes the soul.
And my husband looks at me like I'm mad too Ruth!!  
Well done!!

A moving poem that made me smile!  What's wrong with crying over a sad movie?  Doesn't everyone?  Well, if not, then they should.  I certainly do.
