A poem with excellent manners! Tell someone how lovely you think they are with this polite little rhyme.

A special gift for a friend or loved one, think Valentines, birthdays, anniversaries or just because you think someone is lovely.

The poem was originally typed on an Olivetti Valentine typewriter giving it real character. We love all the ‘whistles and pops’ that come with typing and hope you do too!

This poem is also available as a foiled print

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