The makers of the fountain pen,

have plenty to thank the feathered flock in the sky

readers of the written word

expected their reading , beautifully

written out back in the day

Feathers were carefully chosen

each for the way they balanced in the hand

and when the chosen feather was picked

the nib would be carved out to

hold the ink the paper would be marked with

each one unique, shaped for the task in hand

resting now and again for the writer to collect their thoughts
