    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!

    A grand poem, but you forgot to mention the best of all: parcels with catfish!
