Thank you is a magic word, all across the world.
Happy is one who hears it, grateful is the one who says it.
Available to all, so please use it.
No condition applies, no need to be shy.
Keep on using, you will be surprised.
Your world will be changed, when people realise.
Only if you try, it will never die.
Use it today, it will surely make your day!

Writing 201, Day 2: Gift, Acrostic, Smile
There’s a whole array of sensations and emotions attached to gifts, whether you’re the gifter or the giftee. The tension between packaging and contents, the joy of tearing through layers of wrapping, the surprise or disappointment of discovery once you know what’s inside.
Today’s form: acrostic
Acrostics at a glance: An acrostic is any poem in which the first (or last) letters of each line combine to spell out a word or a phrase, or follow the order of the alphabet.
If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can try creating acrostics using both the first and last letters of every verse — this is called (shocking!) a double acrostic.
Today’s device: simile
A simile, like its name suggests, makes a connection or introduces the idea of similarity between two concepts that aren’t intrinsically connected, leaving an interesting mental image in its wake. It’s a fancy name for saying that cake is like poison, or that a baby’s wails are as loud as thunder. If you’re up for it, include a simile in your poem today.
Make sure the things you compare are conceptually different enough. Don’t compare apples to oranges: compare apples to planets, or animals, or sounds.
