As easy as QWERTY ~ a poem

Touch-typing makes you very fast, from A right through to Z,

“Keep your fingers in position,” my typing teacher said.

I did as I was told and my words per minute soared,

Faster than a speeding bullet, I was top of the score board!

Efficiently my fingers tapped, rhythmically they moved;

Relaxing, therapeutic, it makes my mind feel soothed,

So next time you’re bogged down, with more wood than trees,

Send your typing request to me,  it’ll be done in a breeze!


By Carol Cameleon 2016


The story behind the poem: In my post about my favourite writing tools, Mainey from My Real Fairy commented that she likes to type.  And I do too.  I love typing.  Years ago at school, I learnt to touch-type and have vivid memories of using an old-fashioned typewriter and keeping my index fingers on F and J.

As a typist, there’s nothing better than really getting into the flow, of tapping away and almost seeing steam come off your keyboard!  The springier the better for me.

As a typist, there’s nothing worse than a ‘sticky’ key that you have to thump or force down before the letter will appear on your screen!

Short nails are good too.  I really notice when mine need trimming and get very frustrated.

For me, copy typing is a breeze and I find it very therapeutic.

Some people say that of ironing… not me!

Give me a qwerty keyboard and I’m away, as my poem suggests…

  1. I love typing too, and can touch type, thanks to a training course I had to go on back in the dark ages, where there was only one proper computer in the building, and that was only for your last lesson. You started on real typewriters with blank keys to stop you looking, and you had to do every page perfectly before you could go on. It was terribly dull, but I made friends, got my first smart dress (gifted from someone else on the course), and learned to touch type, which is such a brilliant thing to be able to do.

    • I do think that learning to type on an old-fashioned typewriter (or at least a less prehistorical electric one) is the key to touch typing myself. Lovely that you made friends and got a dress too! 🙂
