Lesson 5 | The letter | SCERT

Let's read a poem about a letter:

I am writing a poem about a letter
To send by the post;
It is to the person
I care for the most.

I write the date clearly
And put the address,
And begin ‘Dearest Mummy’
(Did anyone guess?)

My pen travels slowly
All down the long sheet,
Because I’m so anxious
To keep it all neat.

I carefully blot it
To dry up the ink-
Such nice blotting – paper
The color is pink!

I turn the page over
And on goes my pen,
Till lastly come kisses,
There’s just room for ten

The envelope’s ready,
I put the stamp on,
And run to the post box,
And now it has gone!
