Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEG HIHI JKJK GLGB

Dear Sir Dear Madam or Dear FriendA
With ease are written at the topB
When those two happy words are pennedA
A youthful writer oft will stopB
-
-
And bite his pen and lift his eyesC
As if he thinks to find in airD
The wished for following words or triesC
To fix his thoughts by fix d stareD
-
-
But haply all in vain the nextE
Two words may be so long beforeF
They'll come the writer sore perplextE
Gives in despair the matter o'erG
-
-
And when maturer age he seesH
With ready pen so swift inditingI
With envy he beholds the easeH
Of long accustomed letter writingI
-
-
Courage young friend the time may beJ
When you attain maturer ageK
Some young as you are now may seeJ
You with like ease glide down a pageK
-
-
Even then when you to years a debtorG
In varied phrase your meanings wrapL
The welcomest words in all your letterG
May be those two kind words at topB
