Treasure Island

Courtesy (Free Style)


When someone give you something
Show that you have it in you
Be polite and always say
To them 'Thank you'

Always say 'Please' when you
Ask for anything you do
Don't be rude and unkind
Watch your tongue and actions too

Be kind and show some respect
For the elderly and your peers too
Don't be so loud and shout
When you want something you see

Say 'Excuse me' and greet when you should
Offer a seat to older people and the weaker too
Lend your hand when someone needs it
And help anyone you can when they ask you

We might not be living in Victorian
Times anymore that I can see
This may be the Twenty-first century but
'Courtesy' never goes out of style for me.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
