To write or not to write.
C. J. Black
Now the adventure can begin – I think?
Once I dip friend Quill in ink
I should be able, once given time
To write a piece of poetic rhyme.
Letter writing, it appears is a thing of the past?
All this modern technology leaves me aghast
I enjoy the art of using freehand
Am I on my own in taking this stand?
To keep a written memory of your foreign holiday
Do you write postcards when you holiday away?
Akin to the piano player tinkling in black and white
Putting words onto a page encourages me to write.
How to keep the written word alive and allow it survive-
Is for writers of all genres to strive
Do what makes your heart sing
Promote the art of letter writing.
I firmly believe that all schools as well as their history and geography
On the curriculum should be placed the subject of Calligraphy
I know students are taught to read and write, which is right and proper
They should also be made realise that texting in no way will make them prosper.
There must also be a yearning by adults both young and old
To praise a child for trying, correct them if they error, do not scold
Education should never be viewed as a burden
Once they are started at an early age they will be keen to listen?
Remaining neutral on this subject is I suggest to be negligent
It is essential only for referees to be neutral not just intelligent?
Sitting down to write, does it really matter what they conjure up
Once somewhere within their text they are selling more than a pup.
On that note I believe it’s time to call a halt
Maybe in time to come we writers will get the right result?
This may not be proper structure
Perhaps into the future?
