This is an answer to a poet's challenge letter from Cedric written in hillbilly Arkansas Slang!

Youn’s letter shore was a surprise
 We’ns  don’t git much mail
 Mable said why it was here at sunrise.
 She was some kinda  happy, I could tell.


We jest stay up her in this ole holler
Folks air afeared to come this way,
Ole Blue gits clean out of his collar,
If’n they come up the path night er day! 

When Mabel heared Mattie Mae had a sled
She tolt me to git her one or start fetchin
I’s been thankin bout that thar wood shed,
So’s I’m afixin’ to move the kitchen.


Last winter, we’ns had a big snow
Hit layed around here til nearly sprang
But, by golly, hit got rid of them bugs,
Now Mabel hain’t afeared of a stang!


Is you’ns younguns livin’ thar with us’ns?
I waz athankin they done went and left home,
Jess & Duey  growed up and went to fussin’
The holler twern’t enuf  fer  them to roam.


 One day jest fore sprang plantin time
 Them boys gits a hankerin to take off
 Mabel frets they waz still in their prime
 And should stilt be  playin up in the loft.


 We don’t raze much of nothin’ nomore
 Whats’ with them boys gone and all
 Ole Bessie’s tard and has a sore lag
 Me and Mabel air jest waitin’ fer the call.


 The Lord shore took a liken to me and Mabel
 We’s both been tolerable through the years
 Taint nary a thang much happin’ to tell
 We says er prayers fer we’s know he hears.


 Cedric, we’s best say er goodbyes fer now
 Youn’s write again  when youn’s can
 We shore will be waitin ter hear from ya,
 This letter here is from Mabel and her Man.

A lesson on social and historic linguistics can be learned through the magical poetic grand of "HOWDY CEDRIC".

The reading of "HOWDY CEDRIC" was a learning entertaining experience.

I salute You, Poet!
