A Smile Wasted

I find my smile radiates
It draws adventurous comment
A smile plus a smile is a bond
In my country
My outback
And laughter follows amid my kind
My black kind
A white woman looked at me
I smiled
I cried
She acknowledged not one single part of me
A smile wasted

  3. I am an Australian children’s author putting together a collection of poetry for the ABC. I’d like to include some Aboriginal poems and would appreciate sourcing some poems suitable for 9 to 12 year olds. Could you email me some further information on permission to use one of these poems and any others that you think might be suitable?
    Regards, LH
