First thing I tried on today was a smile.
Later, I wore a frown.

Coming home wet brought me down.
Towards set of sun I was cheerful once more.
Until, as it does, down it went!
At bedtime the prospect of sleep cheered me up.
The absence of same left me spent.
It wasn’t the doldrums that kept me awake.
Or even the fear that my laughter was fake.
No. I worried my tears were not meant.
