The manners to follow while elders get up and go!

When somebody gets up and goes,
…One should not call him loudly from behind,

Should not sneeze, should not ask him
…even by mistake where he is going,

He should not say anything face to face
…by going and standing in front of him,

But he shall speak by standing on both sides of him,
…And go past him on the right side of such elders!

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
