Here is a poem I have written to share with you all about the state of UK post these days!
Remember the regular morning post?
Devoured eagerly over tea and toast
Gossip, secrets, plus all the news
Invites, jokes and the latest views
The main form of communication
Provided us with fresh information
Lines of regard from friend or relation
Don’t forget the correct salutation!
Appointments were made,
Best plans laid
New job offer, official on paper
Love notes too, all saved for later
There's the sound of the letter- box clatter
Penfriend stories full of chatter
Greeting cards brought us cheer
Caring thoughts throughout the year
Now technology make messages instant
The mail service is almost redundant
Yet I still yearn for a nice long letter
That personal touch was so much better!
