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.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
