primo piano Eugene ride in cucina – 12 gennaio 2020

Let's read together:

C’è un sorriso d’love,
and there is a smile of seduction,
a smile there are smiles
where those two smiles meet.
There is a frown of hatred
and there is a frown of disdain,
and a frown there is frowns
which you try in vain to forget,
For deep in the depths of the heart it penetrates,
and sinks into the marrow of the bones-
and no smile was ever smiled,
but only that smile alone,
smile that from the cradle to the grave
you can smile only once;
when it's smile
all misery ends.
