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 !?
