ANTIQUE SOAP CARDS

Updated on February 23, 2013

Collage of antique soap cards~

Hanging in my room~

How I love the visual~

You allow me to step into. ~

At times~

You help me to pretend~

I have traveled afar~

Becoming different lives~

So I write this down to~

Preserve it in my memories~

Archives to dwell.

I often become the golden haired~

Women singing aged songs. ~

I love to see the dark maid from~

Athens under the palm tree~

As she looks exotically adorned.

Of course there is a modest bonneted girl~

Shy finger to her mouth~

As well a dapper man asking a woman~

“Dost thou love me Sister Ruth”?

There are coated warm two toddlers feeding~

A couple of colorful ducks~

Next comin thru the Rye~

A couple kisses in a field~

Until the day is nye.

A sailor suited boy~

Dreaming of his wishful sailboat ~

Another card shows a wee girl leaning on a fence~

As she spies on a boy laying on a riverbank reading~

A book on France.

Little Maggie May holds~

Her rake just so ~

While a petite girl in the baby blue hat~

Looks sad and sulky as~

She stands with nothing else to do~

“Where are you going my pretty maid”~

Is the caption that depicts a girl and her pail~

While a maiden left behind~

Sits on the dock looking forlorn as~

The water splashes the rocks she constantly mourns.

“Good bye sweetheart, Good bye”~

A red headed beauty reaches forever out to the ocean sky~

Next three sisters arm and arm look at~

A full moon on the bay~

After a long fun preening day.

A gal named Mignon just~

Stopped playing her mandolin ~

Than there comes last over a garden wall a~

School girl whom lays~

Her head dreamily in a daze~

Before school begins.

Collage of antique soap cards~

How I love the visual~

You allow me to step into. ~

At times~

You help me to pretend~

I have traveled afar~

Becoming different lives~

Preserve it in my memories~

      So many different characters and a peek into their lives fitted neatly into the daydreams of your character. Very skillful poem and lovely pictures to accompany it.
