Treasure Island

Dorothy Durrant

(United Kingdom)

Romantic Courtesy


He would tip his hat as the lady passed by
When walking along the street
He would take her hand and give it a kiss
Whenever they would meet
He'd open the door of the carriage
When taking a leisurely drive,
Then help her down so carefully
When eventually they'd arrive
He'd take her arm and escort her
Through the doorway and the hall
When visiting a restaurant
Or going to a ball
He'd put her cloak around her
In a loving caring way
A courteous romantic gentleman
But, where is he today !?

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
