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

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.
