The Poet's Corner ... Just Whistle - March 26, 2017

 

 The Poet's Corner
 

 

There is a psychological benefit in the mere physical act of whistling.  When the body makes music, the spirit falls into harmonies too and the discords that assail us cease to make themselves heard.

Just Whistle

by Frank L. Stanton

When times are bad an' folks are sad

An' gloomy day by day,

Jest try your best at lookin' glad

An' whistle 'em away

 

 

Don't mind how troubles bristle,

Jest take a rose or thistle

Hold your own

An' change your tone

An' whistle, whistle, whistle!

 

 

A song is worth a world o' sighs,

When red the lightnings play,

Look for the rainbow in the skies

An' whistle 'em away.

 

 

Don't mind how troubles bristle,

The rose comes with the thistle.

Hold your own

An' change your tone

An' whistle, whistle, whistle!

 

 

Each day comes with a life that's new,

A strange, continued story

But still beneath a bend o' blue

The world rolls on to glory.

 

 

Don't mind how troubles bristle,

Jest take a rose or thistle

Hold your own

An' change your tone

An' whistle, whistle, whistle!
