The last English letter,

The last song, the final

Form

 

Evidently, the British

Like to say this letter

As a word, while

Other English speakers

Simply say zee

 

As I think through

My own alphabet

(More or less in order),

It seems most words

For letters are more

Or less the letter

Sounds,

 

Though double-u

Describes what it is

(In Spanish, double-v)—

 

And the eighth-letter

 

Name might be

Overwrought, long A

Followed by a soft chuh,

Ache with the K

Sound substituted

 

I like calligraphy,

Illumined text in Latin

Or another word—I’m

Sure I’d have no

Patience for the work,

 

Though I love the

Results

 

Would love to have a

Large single letter,

As if monk-made,

Framed, shining to

Illumine me

 

Which letter, I don’t

Know—I’ve twenty-

Six letters in my tongue

(On my tongue) from

Which to choose

 

What letters might light

Up my mind and what

Ones for you
