Great Regulars: This poem begins with the smile

we spend our lives longing to see: the "smile of love." Yet there is a shadow: the "smile of deceit." Are these opposites or two aspects of the same relationship? Somehow there is a "smile of smiles" that combines the two.

from Christopher Nield: The Epoch Times: The Antidote--Classic Poetry for Modern Life: A Reading of 'The Smile' by William Blake
