I bought this postcard at a tiny little antiques fair this morning, because the couple kissing caught my eye, and the poem was old fashioned and lovely…
"He stoops and kisses her red lips. He
looks deep in her eye-
He whispers: "Fairest flower of all,
I’ll love you till I die.
For with the flowers you give to me,
I take your heart so true.
And it is for the fairest flower,
that in loves garden grew."
All well and hopelessy romantic, I thought. Until I turned the card over and saw this:
I’ll catch you at this game!!
I hope you enjoy yourself sometimes!!
Bitter? humorous? Or sarcastic?
