I'm nostalgic for french script, cursive,
for the slanted glide of feathered quill
clean and crisp upon parchment
for considered thoughts.
Yet there it sits, curvaceous;
merely ornamental upon my desk
a testament of bygone days
when words were cherished
now more often than not
replaced with quickly clicking keys
and perfectly spaced words.

This is for Magpie Tales 287. It's been a while since I have played, but this challenge was instrumental to my creativity when I first started writing poetry! It's nice to participate again. Please do your self a favor and visit the other poets.
Grammar police: sets or sits? :)
Someone commented my blog's "verification" is giving them trouble. I checked my status and I have it turned off - there should be NO verification code to type in. Please let me know if this is showing up if you post a comment. Thanks.
