The here and after : The smile (from Strangers)

So here we are 
With kisses and curses, dripped in laughter
Happily, happily, would I disappear

There is a Smile of love
And there is a Smile of Deceit
And there is s Smile of Smiles
In which these two Smiles meet.

And there is a Frown of Hate,
And there is a Frown of Disdain,
And there is a Frown of Frowns
Which you strive to forget in vain ;

For it sticks in the Heart's deep Core
And it sitcks in the deep Back bone,
And no Smile that ever was smiled,
But only one Smile alone,

That betwixt the Cradle and Grave
It only one smil'd can be ;
But when it once is Smil'd,
There's and end to all Misery.

_ William Blake, The Smile
