Order of alphabet by sides on keyboard

When you go in sequence of the alphabet from A to Z, and look at where the keys are on a standard QWERTY keyboard, there is a very definite pattern. The first seven letters start on the left. Then the next nine letters are on the right. Then the rest of the 10 letters are on the left, except for just two right hand side interruptions.

A left

Maybe someone has realized this before, but it’s kinda amazing.
