It matters if your heart feels good.
To say hello.
Tell people that in the end good breeding
is what you do yourself.
Not how you were born
but how you do business.
The courtesy you extend to others.
To be yourself in the fashion
of a lady or gentleman.
Savannah lets you do that.
It breeds politeness.
So I toast my beautiful city.
For letting me be part of its community.
Letting me in the garden of its goodness,
and making me a Southerner
in the best tradition of the word
