ODE TO A SPELL CHECKER
by Jerrold H Zar
I have a spelling checker,
It came with my PC.
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss steaks aye can knot sea.
Eye ran this poem threw it,
Your sure reel glad two no.
Its vary polished in it's weigh.
My checker tolled me sew.
A checker is a bless sing,
It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
And aides me when eye rime.
Each frays come posed up on my screen
Eye trussed too bee a joule.
The checker pours or every word
Too cheque sum spelling rule.
Bee fore a veiling checker's
Hour spelling mite decline,
And if we're lacks oar have a laps,
We wood bee maid too wine.
Butt now bee cause my spelling
Is checked with such grate flare,
Their are know fault's with in my cite,
Of nun eye am a wear.
Now spelling does knot phase me,
It does knot bring a tier.
My pay purrs awl due glad den
With wrapped word's fare as hear.
Too rite with care is quite a feet
Of witch won should bee proud,
And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
Sew flaw's are knot aloud.
That’s why eye brake in two averse
Cuz eye dew want too please.
Sow glad eye yam that aye did bye
This soft wear four pea seas.
a SPELL CHECKER= Is a computer programme that checks (corrects) your spelling when you're writing and marks the words that are not written correctly so that you can correct them. For example the Microsoft Programme WORD has a spell checker, and when you spell something wrong you can see it underlined in red and you can correct it yourself or use one of the suggestions from the spell checker to correct it.
This poem is not for learning vocabulary, but if you are curious about any words you don't know, you can look them up in this page dictionary.
Yeah, this poem is all about homophones, if you pronounce the words aloud they make sense, because they sound the same as other words, but have different spelling. First you should try to write the poem correctly, with the right words (the listening buttons will help you at the end), and then you can check and see if your version of the poem looks more or less like this:
I have a spelling checker; it came with my PC. It plainly marks for my review mistakes I cannot see.
I ran this poem through it. You’re sure real glad to know. It’s very polished in its way, my checker told me so.
A checker is a blessing; it frees you loads of time. It helps me write, all styles to read, and aids me when I rhyme.
Each phrase composed upon my screen I trust to be a jewel; the checker pores o’er every word to check some spelling rule.
Before we wrote with checkers our spelling was in decline, but now when we do have a lapse, we are not made to whine.
But now because my spelling is checked with such great flair, there are no faults within my sight, of none I am aware.
Now spelling does not faze me, it does not bring a tear; my papers all do gladden with wrapped words fair as here.
To write with care is quite a feat of which one should be proud; and we must do the best we can, so flaws are not allowed.
That’s why I break into a verse, ‘cause I do want to please. so glad I am that I did buy this software for PCs.
