Child's E-Mail To God.


Dear God I am riting this to let you no
My Mom's coff got worse and she's just ad to go.
I dont no your E-mail but your everywhere
So sum angel will give it you God, cos you care.

Mom's gone to an ospital they called a Respite
I think that's the name - an I hope it's spelled rite.
They won't let me go cos it's too far away.
But they dont no she hates eggs, an she wont like to say.

Her coff isn't bad when she first gets in bed
But she likes extra pillas God, under er head.
My Mom's got red air, tho she's not got much now
But she likes it combed gently, or else there's a row.

She's got such good teeth God, an beootiful smile
Her nightys are pretty too, she likes keepin in style.
I hope someone reads to her every night - - -
Then says God bless ya and ope bed bugs dont bite.

I thought I would tell you sum things they won't no
And God, cos your busy, I'll sign this off now.
But I wanted to say God before I press send,
She's got nobody there, so please God, be her frend.

    Fay, what can be said that has not been said already, this truly is a most wonderful childlike depection on how a child might try and deal with the illness of thier mother, you have used the idea of wrong spelling and mispronounced words to great effect and make the poem seem more real, rather than that of a adult take on a childs feelings. You have commented on many of my poems which i greatly appreciate, so its natural for me to have a look at your work, however i did not know what to expect and must admit i am really impressed.

    this is to go in my favourites, i have attempted to try poems like this myself but find yours far better.

    with warmth

    A small gem of its kind. Ten seems inadequate here. Thank you for all
    the lovely comments on my work. Each one is treasured. Wishing you and your
    gifted pen only the best.

    Love,

    That's sweet, I feel sorry for the poor mite. It's full of innocent childish feeling, and it is a childish style of writing - the language and spelling errors for one thing! Thanks, we can learn a lot from this (Report) Reply

    This is unquestionably a poem by a masterful poet, Fay, written just as a child would write it-a difficult task for those so fluent in the language. It is simple yet profound and deeply touching to all who read this beautiful poem. It was so realistically expressed and modern as well. Once again, your talent shines in this brilliant poem. Carl.

    I so agree with Juneil. this is definitely a must read. I love the fact that you deliberately misspelled the words. It does give the poem a realness that would not exist in the absence. You're great (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
