“I’m Making a List” by Shel Silverstein

 I’m making a list of the things I must say

 For politeness,

And goodness and kindness

 And gentleness,

Sweetness and rightness:


Pardon me.  How are you?

 Excuse me. Bless you.

 May I? Thank you,


If you know some that I’ve forgot,

Please stick them in your eye!

You taught me it's important to exchange messages in sign language, even if I have only a few words to express my meaning.
