Vintage Paris Postcards

This postcard was sent from Paris around 1910. 



And some have never even been used.

 


I have found these words to post with them today:




"  I am tired, Beloved,


 
of chafing my heart against




the want of you;




of squeezing it into little inkdrops,















And posting it."






These words above are from Amy Lowell's,

 


poem, " The Letter ".
