penny in a castle

A digital chapbook.

An unconventional communication

leave a comment »

I wish to thank you

In an old fashioned way

Ink scrawled in childish handwriting

Smudged blue across the pages

Neatly illegible curls and swoops

Keep it in a small box

Treasured against the years

Until the pages yellow and curl

And you, cherished in your age

Find it hidden

Wrapped in ribbon

Remember me

Smiling, across the distance of time

“Thank you

For the delightful gift”
