Give a Gift


I gave a gift to Angela
To help her feel much better.
She gave it to the mailman
When he handed her a letter.
The mailman took it with him
And gave it to a clown
Who needed it to make folks laugh,
Since the circus was in town.
He left it at the bakery,
Like a cookie on a plate.
Then Jeffrey took it with him
As he went outside to skate.
He passed it on to Mary
As she rode by in a truck.
And she gave it back to Angela
Who was outside feeding ducks.
This crazy tale goes round and round—
It may last quite a while.
Good things come right back to you
When you give away a smile!
