The Original Poet is an old fashioned sort and is on a mission to bring back both the art of writing and the art of wooing!

In an age of hurried texts, dashed-off emails, tweets and posts, we're in danger of losing real words and with it, the ability to say how we feel, outside of a 140 character limit. 

To uphold its traditional values, this charming poem print has been typed on a vintage typewriter and then given some sparkle with a beautiful foiled finish.

This poem is also available as a black & white print

The frame is made from sustainably sourced pine and is glazed with picture grade acrylic.

Poem Wording

Old Fashioned

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.
