  1. Thy smile gives joy to one filled with sorrow
  2. yet thy keep it to thy own
  3. Thy smile fills love and happiness to thy hearts hollow
  4. Uttering sweet things with a soft loving tone
  5. But yet thy smile not when it Golden be
  6. Thy smile is an omen that fills that pail with gold
  7. Thy smile is like a bride walking before her retinue,
  8. travelling athwart faster than thy words of hatred
  9. Thy smile is avuncular even to the old
  10. Hosting a blissful ceremony and thy heart be the venue
  11. Thy smile is sweeter than anything thee have tasted
  12. Yet thy smile not when it Golden be
  13. If ye attest not, then thy lack bonhomie
  14. If not; I shall avow my mistake and guilty you can hold me
