      Dear Diary,

             Though some have suggested
             I lend my thoughts to you,
             writing in a diary
             was never my thing to do.

             It felt so strange to scribble 
             my thoughts, when I took the time,
             that is, until I realized
             that God gave me the gift of rhyme.

             Now it seems that all my thoughts
             have the same sounding ends,
             and since I've joined Poetry Soup,
             I'm making lots of poet friends!

             So, if you will indulge me,
             dear book of rhyme and reason,
             I'd like to write you a couplet or two
             or even a carpe diem!

                                                                                 Always your poet,
                                             
                                                                                           Ellen <3
