The Fast Post deliver many fine things, like the Bramblebury Gazette, and letters from family, and maybe the occasional poem too! Ode to the Fast Post Each morning I check on my post box To see what the fast post's brought me It's quite a surprise To see what's inside I wonder what post there may be It's often a letter from family To give all the news from Woodhall Or from Uncle Bill With news from The Hill I eagerly read through them all And then there is often a leaflet The Gazette! It is such a fine read It's got all the news And recipes too! The fast post brings all that I need It's best when I see there's a parcel It puts me in such a good mood But will it be clothes? Hankies for my nose? I hope for a packet of food! I once got some mail from Mayor Whitfoot He asked for some coin for the Hall But I am sure that he would Have spent it on food I replied I had nothing at all! So, all who deliver the fast post Are deserving of such a loud cheer The letters they bring Are wonderful things Let's toast them with glasses of beer!
