*The Kid Who Learned to Write


I was passing by the school's locker
Until I saw this paper on the floor,
I picked it up and was amazed by what's inside...
In a broken pattern It said:

'wan turite da bes leters por you,
Aymey bi jus sumwon,
samwon whu siting bak op you,
bat aya dor you,
ayheb dis filin me groaweeng
graweeng jaspor you,
you onli en onli you.'

Then I learned that it was from a seven year old kid,
This boy was exactly just like me,
But even though this feeling is just a kid's love,
I know, even a kid can love far more than Romeo and Juliet ^_^
Maybe one day, he too will experience this.
Maybe, I've met the next Romeo finding Juliet in the making...
This kid's got something,
He may be too bad at spelling words,
He may have the craziest grammar,
But one thing is certain - he can spell YOU correctly...

;)

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
