' Don't Write Much These Days'

Don't write much these days,
Did your P.C. break or did you give it away?

I remember the days, way back when,
When we all use to write, on paper, with pencil or pen.

Was life made easier?
Was my thought on this matter.
We can now send a text, or instant message to chatter!

But all of what I see that ever does appear,
Are 'forward's' and 'pass it on',
With some tiny animated pictures, of reindeers.

You warn me of robber's and dangers that lurk,
You poke fun at politics,
Wires spread all that dirt.

There's, 'My Space and 'U-Tube',
There's no privacy or pride.
They seem to have set all that's Holy aside.

If your out there somewhere,
And get this note from me.
Remember I care, so why don't you write and see?

    Tongue in cheek, I clicked on this one saying that after 42 pages of poems, does she need to write any more these days? Still this is an interesting one too.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
