After reading YWP's latest post, the Elusive Gentleman, I found pseudo-poetic inspiration.
A gentleman is
Kind, humble, caring.
Trustworthy, thoughtful, wise.
Courteous, passionate, attentive.
A gentleman is charitable
but not concerned for his own riches.
A gentleman treasures the value of women
and the finer things in life
but never boasts of such things.
A gentleman finds joy in making others happy
but seeks no recognition for doing so.
A gentleman is never perfect at all these things
but makes no excuses for his shortcomings.
A gentleman is my father.
P.S. A gentleman always holds the door.
