Spelling Skills

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

The teacher said,
if I WERE to, today,
or perhaps tomorrow,
create a poem about
the necessity of
what some have called
spellchecking.....
I would try hard,
yes, very hard
to not make any,
not even one
ooooops, new mistake.
Apostrophes do have,
no doubt, their followers.
And many do not know
a teenie thing about them.
It's such a shame
this crazy game,
which has its value
in daily life.
And many do not know,
they are such failures
when it comes to spelling
and grammar, it eludes them,
I wonder what it is?

Funny isn't it that we all think we know english and yet we have problems with punctuation.

you stopped just long enough to smile.
I felt your presence all around me
and hoped that you would stay awhile.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance

and so unknown to me,
