TEACHERS: You can use the text for a dictation, a gapped text, or other form of classroom practice. For your convenience, here is the text you can copy and paste into a Word document.

I’ll sit and write a letter,
Though writing’s not my art.
I’ll have so much to tell you
Once college makes us part.

My words will be quite simple,
But you’ll still understand —
Our love is so strong and true,
A treasure in my hand.

I’ll write and send a letter
Since you’ll be far away
In that city, in that land —
I’ll reach you in this way.
