The Queen taught me grace and stability,
Her long reign enhanced my ability.
Her commitment to duty and to serve,
Her country and the world make us bow, curve.
Good manners and soft-spoken, but succinct,
Her many words of comfort? Now in ink.
She set standards for this unruly place,
Yes. Her mere example makes a strong case!
*Rest in peace, dear Queen Elizabeth II
