# Picture and Paragraph in Metapost

How to insert a paragraph in Metapost and a drawing below that? This has to be done within a single Metapost block, (i.e) within a single `\startMPcode` and `\stopMPcode` block

Sample image :

Since you did not specify your exact problem, nor any example code I can just blindly guess where the problem is. I assume you want to use `\framed` within `textext`. You have to use `align=normal` to create a `vbox`. You can as well simply use a `\vbox` if you don't need the features the `\framed` command provides.

Here is a complete example. As “drawing” I simply used a black square.

``````\startbuffer
\input hawking
\stopbuffer

\starttext
\startMPcode
draw textext.top("\framed[align=normal]{\getbuffer}");
fill fullsquare
xyscaled (TextWidth, 1cm) shifted (0, -5mm);
\stopMPcode
\stoptext
``````
