I Miss the Rumpled Corners of Correspondence

My friend Anna Post (Emily Post’s Great-Great-Granddaughter) posted a link to this poem by Allison Joseph on Facebook yesterday. It’s called Elegy for the Personal Letter. I often have a tough time with poems that don’t rhyme, but this one flows like a friendly river—capturing everything we letter lovers love about letters. This will surely be the next poem I memorize.
