THE APPRENTICE SUITOR.

My deerest luv, Evanjeleen,
Thow art the sweetest gerl Ive seen!
I thort Id rite this sonnit for you
To tell you that I do addore you.
Yor nose is o so very pritty
Thers no nose like it in the sitty.
Yor tiny litle slenda wayst
Is egzactly to my tayst.
Now that we are boath sicsteen
If Im a King can you be Cween?
Forgiv me if I seem cwite shy.
I now Ill luv you till I die.
See, Ive ritten forteen lines!
Sonnits are just lic valentyns!

The rime, the content and the words are comic - don't you think the way you want to go with spelling would have the whole world laughing, as the French post impressionists were laughed at when their paintings were first shown in London around 1907?

I just love (LOVE) this poem.
It is superb on so many levels: the gentle satire, the vulnerability of young love, the torture of expressing oneself in verse...
Brilliance.

Tino said...

I smiled all the way through this. A fantastic idea, you must send text messages to enable you to write like that ;-)

Margaret said...

Ingenious, really. You always deliver the goods.

Andy said...

Laughing...oh my dear...doesn't matter how the poor boy penned it, I think she got the message.

Delightfully entertaining.
Thank you Brenda.
