A poem for old fashioned romantics!
Texting, posting, tweeting and emailing, they’re all great… quick and easy and often accompanied by a sprinkling of emojis to keep things light.
But we say, bring back the poets, the wordsmiths, the wooers with words, the letters, the love notes and the poems.
Go old-school and send this charming rhyme to a loved one in the post. We think presenting it with a handwritten note would win serious points in the romance stakes!
This poem is available as a foiled print
Paper size A4 - 21 x 29.7 cm
All our poems are printed on the highest quality archival papers from heritage paper merchant GF Smith.
The fine-grain smooth art paper is 240gsm and has been selected specifically for our printing and foiling, to ensure a beautiful finish.
Each print is hand-embossed with The Original Poet's initialled branding.
A4 outside frame size - 24.2 x 30.3 cm with depth of 3.7 cm
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.
