Treat Others With Respect

Poem By Francis Duggan

Treat others with respect and they will respect you
And to your higher self try to remain as true
A smile as is said does not come at a price
No it will not cost you a thing for to be nice
So many are so full of their own self conceit
Nice people are always a pleasure to meet
The strangers who in passing smile and say hello to you in truth one can say
Does always help for to bring joy to your day
A smile as is said does not cost one a thing
And to one not having a good day some joy it may bring
The friends of the moody are in the few
And this is not saying anything that is new
Respect like most things in life you must give to receive
I am one of those who on this does believe.

And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
