Reminiscences of a Pencil

That's not a very good picture, but those are some of my pencils. I like little pencils as you can see. My Pencil Stub You dear faithful old friend, With you I wrote a letter to send. With you I wrote some Poetry. With you I wrote a sweet story. You are now old and worn For many hours of school you’ve borne. Together you and I will make history Together we unfold a mystery.

With you I wrote what happened last. I used you when you were just a stub You are my friend; you are my bub. Live for Jesus! Love one another! Laugh a lot! Smile big! ☺
