Our alphabet has twenty six
All words use at least one
And if we didn’t have them
No writing would get done

I’ve used them all forever
Some often and some less
But if I were to pick one
It would have to be the S

Because it is so versatile
Words start and stop with it
Or somewhere in the middle
It is comfortable to sit

I’ve always liked to use it
In my many writing styles
ย But my favorite place to put it
Is in front of all my miles.

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
