Subject: An Ode to the Spelling Chequer

 

This came from a homonym site I was looking at.

For all those word wonks out there like me.

***  * * * 

As a final treat, here is a homonymical poem by Janet E. Byford sent to me
from England by Lem Bingley. TAKE A BOUGH 


An Ode to the Spelling Chequer


Prays the Lord for the spelling chequer
That came with our pea sea! 
Mecca mistake and it puts you rite
Its so easy to ewes, you sea. 

I never used to no, was it e before eye? 
(Four sometimes its eye before e.) 
But now I've discovered the quay to success
It's as simple as won, too, free! 

Sew watt if you lose a letter or two, 
The whirled won't come two an end! 
Can't you sea? It's as plane as the knows on yore face
S. Chequer's my very best friend

I've always had trubble with letters that double
"Is it one or to S's?" I'd wine
But now, as I've tolled you this chequer is grate
And its hi thyme you got won, like mine. 

-Janet E. Byford
