There was once a little girl,named Susan
any ordinary girl you could imagine,
She had golden blond hair which cascaded down to her shoulders,
with a cute headband and colourful pastel shirts,
but that horrible grump was what made the ugliness- ugh!
Then one day,
a little old man- a few inches shorter than her-maybe the size of a brownie,
with emerald green eyes that shone under the sun,
with greying hair-
but what made him special was his wide smile.
He came over to the sulky little Susan,
and handed her a mirror.
What Susan saw made her appalled;
she was looking at a terrible face-
with green eyes
and a horrid frown.
“Now smile,” said the old man, giving a grin.
She gave a grin in front of the shiny mirror-
and she saw a pretty girl- or maybe a princess,
looking kindly at her.
and her pearl white teeth
with her pink lips,
“This is magic,” Susan said,
holding the mirror tightly.
She bade the wizard farewell
and kept on smiling at the mirror.
Many of her friends didn’t understand-
but what they knew was-
A smile takes a mile!
