Handlettered Poem ~ I Choose You Wedding Poem

handlettered poem ~ i choose you ~ wedding poem ~ by English poet, Ms Moem ~ modern calligraphy @msmoem

I’ve been loving experimenting with handlettering and modern calligraphy.

This is my latest work of art. It is a handlettered copy of my wedding poem ‘I Choose You‘.

I love the way it came out. It has added a new artistic angle to my poetry!

All the colours of the rainbow – perfect for a bright, festival, summer wedding:


And look how fabulous it looks in black and neon pink:

As ever, if you would like to use this poem at your wedding, please do drop me a line and let me know.

I love hearing what my poems get up to when I am not looking.

I think I will definitely be creating more handlettered pieces.

One last colourway ~ something blue:

When facing our problems,
It’s not that no-one cares.
It’s just that everybody else
Is busy dealing with theirs.

We are flesh and hair
And nails and skin
We’re heart and soul
And goodness within
And in the end
When we look back
We’re all just bones
With stories attached.

Gold Calligraphy Ink

I simply cannot get enough of this gold calligraphy ink slash watercolour by finetec. I am literally writing on all the things!

It’s just so pretty.

What do you think about these two quotes. The gold looks sensational against the black. Not sure the photos really capture just how smooth it is. It feels like writing with actual molten gold.

A Poem About Becoming A Mother

Becoming A Mother ~ a poem written by English Poet, Ms Moem @msmoem

Becoming A Mother

Becoming a mother’s a wonderful thing.
A baby’s a gift; their own love they bring.
It’s a marvellous time, it really is neat
But some things that happen aren’t quite so sweet.

Your figure is altered, re-moulded & softened.
Time with the washing machine becomes urgent and often.
Your brain becomes addled as your womb swells with pride;
You are being re-programmed, right from the inside.

You develop an instinct straight from Jurassic Park
Like the fire had been built, and had now taken spark.
You could distinguish a cry from hundreds of others;
Transformation complete. You are now primal mother.

Your fears become heightened, so no resting on laurels.
It’s your job to be teacher, imparting knowledge and morals.
It is your job to guide them, to become compass, and driver
As you yearn for their happiness, with every single fibre.

You’ll watch more children’s television than you’d care to admit
So much so, that you’ll even start to enjoy it a bit.
You’ll find yourself engrossed and so enter the trap
Where you carry on watching, while baby is taking a nap.

So yes there are changes, embrace one and all.
Be poised ready for action, any time your child calls
And simply do your best, then you won’t go far wrong
But above all, enjoy each moment, as childhood doesn’t last long.

Becoming A Mother is a poem written by English Poet, Ms Moem.

Happy Birthday To Me

Ms Moem ~ Happy Birthday To Me!

Twas my birthday yesterday. My children made me cards and painted canvases for me. My Dad popped in with a cake he had made and stayed for a cuppa. My eldest played the guitar and we sang together. My oldest friend dropped a card and gift round. My Aunty sent birthday greetings in the post.

It really is the little things. To be thought of.

All in all, wonderful day. I feel very blessed.

Harry Potter Blackout Poetry | Found Poem

A found poem in the form of blackout poetry:

Look ordinary.
Be magic.

– Ms Moem

Created from a page of Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling.

I haven’t done any blackout poetry before, but I think I might like it. I have tried a couple of styles.

The first is plain, though not black, as such.


This second piece of blackout poetry is a little more whimsical and colourful.

Which do you prefer?

Always good to try a new way of working with words.

Great fun!

Expect more blackout and found poems.
