“Your smiling good-naturedly in
your brother’s face is charity.”
As fair as the morning, And as full of grace, Is the bright friendly smile, On a good-natured face. As firm as a mountain, Deny it who can, Is the grasp of the hand, Of the good-hearted man. As welcome as sunshine, True warmth to impart, Is the sweet kindly word From a good-natured heart. As pure as the dew-drop, So tender, so dear, Is the sympathy shown By the good-natured tear.
