Just Smile… A Poem by Kate Hanford

Just Smile…A Poem by Kate Hanford

These days people are always rushing around with heads down emersed in mobile phones. It seems like simple acts of kindness and good manners have been long forgotten. I wish people would take time to absorb what is going on around them. Then, they might notice the old lady who needs a seat on the train or the girl sitting alone in the park. A simple act of kindness is all that is needed to change someone’s day. Even just a smile can make a huge difference.

This poem is written about good manners and thoughtfulness to others.

I hope you like it :

Just  Smile

  I find it hard to construe,

What it takes to say “Thank You”

It really doesn’t take that much

To pass along a grateful touch

and could “Please”  be uttered a little more?

A chair pulled out? An opened door?

“Good Morning”  always is a treat

On a crowded train when  eyes do  meet

Who knows, you might just make a friend

When you smile and a hand extend

And in days when people have no time

A simple kindness is sublime

and spreads a smile, which is returned

Welcomed in and respect earned.

Then that person spreads the word

Manners kept and kindness heard

So remember it is worth your while

To say “Thank You”  and Just Smile

    Courtesy is a wonderful thing–and it costs us nothing. In fact, it’s as good for the giver as it is for the recipient. 🙂
