    Original Poem, by Wilz Shangra Li, S-S Sak

    Would like too rite of the sesons good cher. An of the plas wher ther is good ber. Of the plas where the sno is dep and clen. And the wodlan is coverd wit its wite shen. Of the deer that pla in the moons wite lite. And the russling noises in the wod at nite. Of the fish that jump in da babling brok. And fail to bit on yor temting hok. Of the ski, the son, the brds and the bes. And those bak hom who wait 4 me. The wai of da pen was not mi temtasion. And so was neglected from my eddication. So, I cannot writ of the babling brook. The laks the strems or da vare fesh hok. Thi hiways an biways, da hills and vals. Or the cosy noks wher they tel tal tals. Al I can do is set an wondar. Y absense maks the hart gro fonder. p.s. da say the pen is mitier den the sord. Do yu tink it could get me out of this darn war???
