1938 - Underwood Universal - Portable Typewriter

Notes from the Underwood

She moves with a fluid grace
73 years and still the precision machine.
In the day she was made, a tool
for bashing out inspiration with every
click and clack. Now used for decor
in the modern world, a treasured past.

Is there another tale in this old girl?
Another song, another rhyme, another line?

There is only one way to know, 
roll in another blank sheet & see. 
Feel the weight of each key pressed, 
one line at a time it is a good test.
