Into the kitchen for a cup of jo,
then it's off to my study, I will go.

Sit down, relax, get everything right,
before I know it, morning is night.

Roll the paper,  neatly into place,
tap,tap,tap,don't forget the space.

Mind is in gear, words flowing with ease,
oh crap, where's my white out, I hit the wrong key.

Page after page the words start to flow,
stop, take a break, I really have to go.

Grab a quick snack,  then it's back to my chair,
to finish my masterpiece, without a minute to spare.

It's been a long day, my works finally done,
until next time typewriter, for another long run.

    The only thing to remember is that your poem is a winner...very delightful especially the part about "before I know it, morning is night" This always happened but we were happy....white outing along.....

    Hi Colleen, my typewriter poem didn't make the winners list either. I still think it is a good poem. So even when we don't place we at least have created something that previously never existed. That has great value. I enjoyed reading yours again.
