Having received a letter from a gentleman glorying in his typewriter we replied as follows:
You glory in your typewriter,
And its virtues you rehearse,
But we prefer the old inditer,
For to write either prose or verse.
And let each man work his will,
But never never do abuse
The ancient and glorious quill
From the wing of a fine old goose.

A pendulum sways
are rutted by a feather-edged tread.
A pendulum sways.
Something is amiss.
A white feather glides
down, into the abyss…
