By Jane McLaren


From the heart and from the soul ,
Words have been written to convey ,
Messages of love , or good wishes ,
Or the passing of the day .

The pigeon , an arrow or man ,
Has delivered schemes or muses ,
Penned on scroll , card or paper ,
Whatever the sender chooses .

A letter slipped in a book ,
May , one day , be of history ,
Who knows the secret subterfuge ,
Unsolved , to remain a mystery .

E-mails and texts travel ,
Almost at the speed of light ,
But , can this touch pad send ,
True passion, via a megabyte .
