A Poem

The letter A is the first letter in the Latin alphabet, a vowel. Its name in English is spelled ‹a›; the plural is aes.

 

A, that article of our speech

 

Always handy within reach.

 

I use it often as we all do,

 

Without it oh my what a to-do,

 

If we want to say "a bee"

 

Rather than "bees" specific;

 

In such cases you use a "the"

 

As you have to do grammatically.

 

For one or general though it's just terrific.

 

In all contingencies one needs to be aware, eh?

Very QBLHistic of you Franks! After all the first letter of the bible is B (or Beth) and their is a long dialog about why the 1 chose Beth before Aleph;-)

 

A nice romp- enjoyed!

Very clever, Frank. I've found that the proper uses of a/the can be quite befuddling to English beginners. I like this poem a lot and think it's one of your best.
