Smiling is infectious

You catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today

Sign up to our daily newsletter

The i newsletter cut through the noise

I started to smile too.

I passed it round the corner

And someone saw me grin,

When he smiled I realised

I’d passed it on to him.

I thought about the smile

And realised its worth

A single smile like mine

Could travel round the earth.

If you feel a smile begin

Don’t leave it undetected

Let’s start an epidemic quick

And get the world infected.
