A Handwritten Letter by Hannah Allen

How thrilled I would be

To receive a handwritten letter

From a friend,

I know you’d have to

Pay for postage,

Use paper,

Find an envelope,

And ask for my address

Because I doubt you know it.


But, what a memorable day that would be,

As I rummage through the riff raff

Of bank and company statements,

To find a handwritten letter,

A long lost treasure in my mail.


I could see how your pen may have quivered

To finish an idea,

Or crossed out a word you felt unneeded,

Your edited association of thought,

With no digitally encrypted feeling,

Just the draw of the raw pen.


How touched I’d feel to read that letter,

To see your own handwriting,

I don’t think I’ve ever seen it before.

About the Author

I grew up in a small town in Florida where I currently live. A pretty normal 90’s childhood. The youngest of three. A proud Aunt. A current college graduate figuring it all out. I’ve always enjoyed writing and songwriting. A big fan of 60’s Rock ‘n’ Roll helped guide me towards my love for poetry. I look forward to the many adventures ahead.
