Dear Miss Austen

Whilst catching up on a little Jane Austen (my favorite author), I recalled a poem I wrote a while ago and published on an old blog….

Dear  Miss Austen…

I wish you were here today

I’m sure we would be friends

I would express my true admiration

Of that I’d not pretend

We could write a pretty letter

Of our devoted love

Or would you email me?

Perhaps that would be good

The words would be the same

Straight from the heart

But you would probably say

‘The ink is more of Art’

I would wear your dresses

You could borrow mine

Walking down the street

Ladies oh so fine

Thank you for your novels

Your poems and your letters

I know with your help

My writing will get better
