FOR SMILIN' OUT LOUD

When life seems too befuddlin’
Take time to do some spuddlin’
Go splashin’ while it’s puddlin’
Go barefoot in the rain.

When things are poor to middlin’
And both your thumbs are twiddlin’
Stand on your head while fiddlin’
For smi-l-in' out loud!!

When all about are snigglin'
Get all your toes a'wigglin'
Then soon you will be gigglin'
Your doldrum’s sure to wane.

When things get willy-nilly
Do something brash and silly
Eat ice-cream with your chili
For smi-l-in’ out loud!

Whenever you feel maudlin
Watch baby ducklings waddlin’
There’s always one that’s dawdlin’
That’s no time for disdain

When life is too befuddlin’
Make time to go out spuddlin’
That’s splashin’ while it’s puddlin’
For smi-l-in’ out loud!!!

Oh, Nan; You have put me in the greatest fun mode! LOL! Your poem is FULL of the greatest wisdom of all, laughter IS the best medicine.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this, especially the little guys a dancing their silly dance. Today I will definitely remember to be silly for no reason at all.
Thanks a bunch. Ellie #:^]>

Great words of wisdom, with an important spoken with same poetic flow as that great philosopher Winnie the Pooh.

I feel all happy after your poem

Loved it!  As anyone can see, you had a wonderful birthday bash!
