Day 26 of NaPoWriMo I chose not to follow the prompt. Here is my poem
I read that cursive writing
may no longer be taught in schools
as it is becoming obsolete.
Let’s be careful with these new rules.
I, myself, print all the time
and have done for many years.
I’m not sure why I started
but that’s how each poem appears.
Most letters I have to, or want to, write
are printed from my computer
and I very rarely use a script font.
I could never be a handwriting tutor.
Books are written and read in print,
printed forms want print when filled out.
It’s only signatures that are cursive
so that will be taught, no doubt.
It’s sad to think that handwriting
may become an art of the past
or offered as an alternative course.
I hope handwriting will last.
So much electronics nowadays,
children only need to push keys,
but there’s something refined in handwriting,
a unique, expressive way to please.
