A good old fashioned pen and paper are at the start of every poem The Original Poet writes, and a good old fashioned helping of romance is at the heart of this rhyme.
It’s true that emails, texts and Whatsapp messages can help us woo at speed, 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 nib pen and bottle of ink, this poem has been given some extra love with a sparkling foiled finish in a choice of silver or gold.
A wonderful wedding, anniversary or valentine gift, this is a love poem to last the test of time and joy of joys, no wifi signal needed!
This poem is also available as a black and white print

Our frames are handmade in Brighton by a highly skilled framer specialising in hand-finishing. We've chosen a simple hand-painted white wooden frame to complement our poem prints.
The frame has been designed with a recess, which means there is a space between the the print and the glazing. This creates a professional gallery-style finish, not found in high street frames.
The frame is made from sustainably sourced pine and is glazed with picture grade acrylic.

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.
