A charming rhyme celebrating the old-fashioned art of wooing!

It’s true that emails, texts and Whatsapp messages can deliver our love at speed (wifi signals permitting) but when it comes to romance, there’s nothing quite like the magic of a love note, letter or indeed poem!

Handwritten and illustrated using a real pen with a nib and a bottle of ink, The Original Poet is an old fashioned kinda girl, but has a feeling she’s not alone.

This beautifully presented rhyme would make a wonderful wedding, anniversary or valentine gift, something to read and re-read for years to come. You don’t get that from a text!

This poem  is also available as a foiled print

Poem Wording

I'm not a fan of email,

I'm not that keen on texts,

I'd rather write in longhand,

for me, handwriting's best.

Some say that I'm old-fashioned

and should move with the times,

but I'm a simple human

and I write what's on my mind.

So I'll keep on sending letters

and love notes you can hold

and I hope perhaps you'll keep them,

to read when you are old.
