Friends of Pen and Ink
It's rather wonderful I think
When friends are made of pen and ink.
A piece of paper, blue and white,
Someone decides that she will write
To someone she has never seen
Who lives where she has never been.
A pen becomes a magic wand
Two strangers start to correspond
Not strangers long but soon good friends,
Just note how their last letter ends.
How pleasant their exchange of views,
The comments on important news,
Two friends who live quite far apart
Can gladden much each other's heart,
Can nourish too each other's mind
With Godly thoughts in letters kind.
It's truly beautiful I think,
The friendship sprung from pen and ink.
Dedicated to my "letter friends since childhood", RuthAnn, Nancy and Margie.
