"My Typewriter

I have a trim typewriter now,
They tell me none is better;
It makes a pleasing, rhythmic row,
And neat is every letter.
I tick out stories by machine,
Dig pars, and gags, and verses keen,
And lathe them off in manner slick.
It is so easy, and it’s quick.

And yet it falls short, I’m afraid,
Of giving satisfaction,
This making literature by aid
Of scientific traction;
For often, I can’t fail to see,
The dashed thing runs away with me.
It bolts, and do whate’er I may
I cannot hold the runaway.

It is not fitted with a brake,
And endless are my verses,
Nor any yarn I start to make
Appropriately terse is.
‘Tis plain that this machine-made screed
Is fit but for machines to read;
So “Wanted” (as an iron censor)
“A good, sound, secondhand condenser!”"

The poem in Today's Daily Jigsaw Puzzle is titled "My Typewriter" and was written by
Australian magazine editor, novelist, short story writer, playwright, and poet, Edward Dyson (1865 – 1931) ♥

In today's Daily Jigsaw Puzzle, we see a selection of colourful vintage typewriters on a table ♥

What a great posting, but I don't miss having you use White - Out, then waiting for it to dry, and trying to re-align the page before making a correction. Still, it beat handwriting everything out for early college papers.


What fun to see, my father had one just like the top right, remember it well. Thanks


Yipes, Yes I do remember...You brought back a bad memory. 😉😊

I enjoyed this one!


Brings back nightmares from time in Army. Every letter was an original and six copies. One sheet typing paper. six sheets onion skin paper, and six sheets of carbon paper. One wrong key stroke equaled twenty minutes time to make a correction. I would have killed to have today's word processor then.

Fun puzzle and the poem is a hoot!
