For The Audience At That Place Beginning With 'P'

I’ve spoken
to polite applause
to creaking chairs
& swinging doors
from halls with half a thousand
down to rooms with less than ten.

Of all of these
Without exception
The one I’ll always like
Was your generous reception
When I picked up the mike

(for I was truly happy, then) .

How can I praise this neat poem through my seething green envy...?
