The Note

by Derek Gideon, 14, Rhinebeck, New York

His parents sobbed when they received the note,
The postman trembled when he delivered the note,
The gossip jumped when she saw the note,
His officer shook as he sent the note,
The man who ran the printing press was awestruck at the many notes,
When the soldier lay dying he thought of the note,
And many months before it was written
The king signed the note.
