Reading Aloud

 

 

THE COURTEOUS MONTH

 

I think of May as representing

            courtesy and grace,

And letting children understand

            politeness has a place.

 

Not “Can I have some ice cream,”

            but “may I have some, please,”

Conveys a nicer attitude

            and verbal expertise.

It’s not so much the grammar

            and the syntax that we teach;

But mostly it’s the level

            of civility we reach.
