Automatic Writing?

I was trying out a new pen in my classroom and was absent-mindedly writing the words 'poetry' and 'excelsior' on a piece of scrap paper. A few minutes after, I went to the staff room to do some copying. As I was at the photocopier, another member of staff turned to me and asked if I had ever heard of a poem called 'Excelsior' by Longfellow. I had to tell him that coincidentally, those were the very words I had only just been writing in my classroom. We were both struck by the strangeness of this event.
