By Langston Hughes.

In an envelope marked
God addressed me a letter.
In an envelope marked;
I have given my answer.

Paper 1
By Carl Sandburg.

Paper is two kinds, to write on, to wrap with.
If you like to write, you write.
If you like to wrap, you wrap.
Some papers like writers, some like wrappers.
Are you a writer or a wrapper?

Paper II
By Carl Sandburg.

I write what I know on one side of the paper
And what I don't know on the other.
Fire likes dry paper and wet paper laughs at fire.
Empty paper sacks say, "Put something in me,
What are we waiting for?"
Paper sacks packed to the limit say, "We hope we don't bust."
Paper people like to meet other paper people.

Six Will Do
By Merle Glasgow.

Words—not many,
Six will do:
Merry Christmas
From me to you.

How to Write a Letter.
By Elizabeth Turner.

Maria intended a letter to write,
But could not begin (as she thought) to indite;
So she went to her mother with pencil and slate,
Containing “Dear Sister,” and also a date.

“With nothing to say, my dear girl, do not think
Of wasting your time over paper and ink;
But certainly this is an excellent way,
To try with your slate to find something to say.

“I will give you a rule,” said her mother, “my dear,
Just think for a moment your sister is here,
And what would you tell her? Consider, and then
Though silent your tongue, you can speak with your pen.”
