Many of us are courteous and polite

Even with strangers we are meeting.

But being nice has much more might

As it lasts longer than just a greeting. 

Thank you, you’re welcome, and please

Are words most are taught as a child,

But being a really nice person with ease,

Takes a very long, long while.

(by Jean Gorney)
