Graciousness is a salutary role,
there are no rules but there is a way –
listen without observing
and submit with affirmation.
Both welcomed at the table
and chosen chum on the couch…
considered wanted company is a gift
and leads to being a courted blessing.
Sought to share activity is an honor –
conscientious but chill
and careful beyond reproach
makes for a good time had by all.
Always ready, willing, and able…
aware of expectations,
attentive to possibilities,
and available without an agenda.
Enjoying the embrace and feeling the love,
parting becomes sweet sorrow
and invited back brings happiness
to both guest and host together.
