All about Emojis.

Emojis came about, I think,
because folks have a need for wink
and grins that last throughout the week,
or tears that flow from yellow cheek.

(The yellow cheek of Smiley Face
  appears today from place to place.
  Within a text and email, too,
  Emojis are for me and you.)

I also think they came to be
because there is a need for glee.
Ideas expressed Emoji way
are commonplace and here to stay.

(Communication is with speed,
  and so there seems to be a need
  to spice communiques for fun;
  Emojis seem to get it done.)

Icons express ideas, all right,
and they are pleasant to one’s sight.
They help to fill emotion’s aim;
words often fail to play that game.

Emojis come from human minds;
indeed, there are so many kinds.
There’s need for this Emoji stuff
because, sometimes, words aren’t enough.
