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 ".
