"Hum A Happy Tune" by jaybird1
When I was young, still in my prime,
I loved to whistle all the time.
From morning fog, till nightly dew, 
the whistling came, the whole day through.

My whistling came, if I felt sad
and lifted me from gloom to glad.
The joy I got from doing this,
I'll long remember, always miss.

But then, with age my teeth were lost
and broken spirits were the cost.
I tried to sing, with no welcome,
then found instead, I still could hum.

Hum happy tunes when you feel low-
And give your life a brand new glow.

September-2020

Author Notes
You might consider this as silly, but singing, whistling or humming will lift your
spirits, when you are down.
