The Smiley Town


How would it be if a town could smile,

the buildings beaming their welcome

people sending warm thoughts as they pass by?

When I first came to Corsham

I walked into the High Street

captivated by the architecture,

the whole atmosphere –

this was where I wanted to live.

What a smiley place it was –

everybody spoke, everybody smiled.

I thought this is small town delight,

I wanted to be here, and still feel the same –

it is a lovely place to be.

The day we moved in,

I sat in the car park with my husband

waiting for the key

and all the peacocks came to see us,

walked around the car –

I think even they were smiling.
