The letter. A lost art.
Day 25 — Book Writing/Birthday Month
The letter. A lost art.
Hand written letters, cards, & notes.
I swear I just hate that we’ve lost this
I LOVE this site
I find a lot of inspiration here.
I still write cards and notes.
I am a little old-fashioned
About certain things.
I used to correspond with a number
Of people via letter.
Both Grandmothers, Aunt Mary,
My cousin Stacey, Amber, pen pals.
Lots of friends and I love sending
Postcards to people from exotic places.
I guess texting and the emoji
Have replaced a good old letter.
Holiday cards are waning too.
I do love getting a letter in the mail still.
My Mom and I still do that for each other
And it’s one of my favorite things.
I could not buy my Mom another thing
But if I don’t send her a card, there
Is serious trouble.
I met a guy this week because he had
A beautiful L tattooed on his arm in cursive
And I couldn’t help but reach out and trace it.
The lost art of cursive writing.
Sonnet 18 written out long hand is one of my favorites.
I need to do that more.
It feels good to write.
Something fluid about it
Wait a minute Mr Postman.
Don’t you have a letter for me?
Please Mister Postman look and see
Is there a letter oh yeah in your bag for me?
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
