To make oneself seem less than they are
To lower the eyes and address the ground
Shifting the gaze and bending the knee
Holding out a gloved hand as a silent offer
Friendship, respect, and a certain cunning
To present to the other a vulnerable character
Awkwardly lowering the head and the shoulders
Stiffen and slouch to welcome the blow
Over the years, where did the bow go?

Me neither until I actually looked up the definition! Thanks for your comment!

Dang. I never thought of it that way...
